Salvation Army Sponsoring Back to School Drive


The first day of school for students in the Boise School District is August 25, meaning many parents are beginning to stress about going back-to-school shopping and affording these often costly items. Luckily, the Treasure Valley Salvation Army is sponsoring a Back to School Supply Drive. Donations will be accepted at local Fred Meyer stores and at the Salvation Army office at 4308 W. State Street until August 22. Most-desired supplies include markers, rulers, scissors and college ruled paper.

Families who would like to receive school supplies can walk into the State Street office Wednesday August 18-Tuesday August 24 between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. Supplies will be given out on a first-come, first-serve basis.
