The calendar may still say "July," but it's time to start thinking about the upcoming school year. That's because starting today, you can help provide school supplies for children in need.
The Salvation Army of Spokane is partnering with local business to collect community donations with a goal of handing out 4,000 fully-stocked backpacks next month. Protractors, compasses, calculators, college-ruled paper, colored markers and pencils are among the items most needed this year.
You can drop off your donations at any of the current bin locations:
- Fred Meyers
- Home Dept
- Prime Source Credit Union
- Advance America
- Public Safety Building
The backpacks will be distributed on Friday, August 16th at the Salvation Army Community Center at 222 E. Indiana. If you'd like a drop-off bin at your place of business, please call 509-329-2721.
