In communities across the United States, officers and staff of The Salvation Army are helping folks keep their heads up despite very trying circumstances.
Families with kids are beginning to think about the upcoming school year … but for many people we serve, their thoughts aren't always happy ones.
Moms and dads wonder how they'll pay for the supplies needed to outfit their kids for the academic year, while they struggle to make the rent and feed their family.
The kids dread showing up on the first day without a backpack, notebooks, pen and pencils, or any of the basics they'll need to succeed.
So we've teamed up with Fry's Food Stores, FOX 10 Phoenix, Bank of Arizona, 99.9 KEZ, FOX 10 Xtra,and American Express to level the playing field with our Backpack SOS (Support Our Students) drive.
Your school supply donations can make all the difference for local children in need.
From July 9 through July 27, donations can be dropped off at any Fry's Food Store in Arizona, as well as any Bank of Arizona location in the Phoenix metro area.
