Gayle Anderson was live in Costa Mesa for the “WE CARE WEDNESDAY SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE” at the Orange County Fair.

Don’t miss the last few days of the 2015 Orange County Fair, which is open through Sunday, August 16th. This year celebrates the 125th anniversary of the fair with the theme, “One Big Party.” The OC Fair consists of 23 days and nights of food, exhibits, rides, animals and shopping.

Fairgoers can save on admission and give back to the community by participating in today’s final "We Care Wednesday" weekly donation drive, which offers FREE admission and one FREE carnival ride per person with the proper donation.

Today's "We Care Wednesday" donation drive is a school supply drive benefiting Share Our Selves. Donate new school supply item(s) valued at $5 or more and receive free admission plus one FREE carnival ride per person from Noon to 3 PM TODAY. Receipt required. Accepted items include pens, pencils, crayons, notebooks, notebook paper, and school backpacks.

Share Our Selves is one of the largest, most comprehensive, volunteer-based agencies providing safety net services for homeless and low-income individuals and families in Orange County. In 2014, SOS distributed over 3,700 backpacks filled with school supplies to Orange County students from low-income families through its 19th Annual Back to School Program. This year, SOS celebrates 20 years of providing backpacks and school supplies to Orange County children. Please help SOS send kids back to school with a great start!
