Salvation Army, Fred Meyer run campaign to collect school supplies for kids
SPOKANE, Wash. — The Salvation Army and local Fred Meyers are working to help students who can’t afford basic school supplies for the upcoming school year.
Beginning on August 6, the “Burst a Bus” campaign will help collect school supplies which will then be donated to a goal of 5,000 students.
Between August 6 and August 10, community members are encouraged to drop off school supplies at the following Fred Meyer locations:
15609 E Sprague Avenue
12120 N Division St
400 S Ralph St
Supplies collected will be distributed mid August.
“The need in this community is heartbreaking,” said Major Ken Perine of the Salvation Army Spokane. “We know that this is a giving community and we truly believe that if we all work together, we can give these kids a chance to reach their highest potential. Research shows that having adequate school supplies can make a difference in a child’s learning environment. We see this as an investment into our community’s future.”
