Listeners shopping for back-to-school items on Texas Tax Free weekend (August 10–11) were encouraged to donate at least one item for a student in need. The drive aims to fill multiple school buses with school supplies that will be distributed during the organization’s “Back-To-School Bash” August 24. 

KASE 101 and 98.1 KVET were on-site at Brodie Lane in front of the Academy and World Market on Saturday and Sunday. Donors were able to win items from various Sunset Valley Merchants throughout the weekend. The event was sponsored by The Austin Board of Realtors and the City of Sunset Valley.
