MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) –WCCO helped accomplish something that will make going back to school a little easier for thousands of families Sunday.

You may remember the phone bank to help “Simon Says Give” raise money for backpacks and school supplies.

In one day, our viewers contributed $15,000 and the money kept rolling in afterwards.

On Sunday, volunteers loaded up the backpacks at the Eagan Community Center to get them ready for the kids, and photojournalist Carly Danek was there.

You can still donate to “Simon Says Give”.

Besides backpacks, they throw birthday parties all year long for kids who couldn’t otherwise afford them.
