WHEN GETTING your children ready for back to school, think about helping out kids who need school supplies but can’t come by them as easily.
The Terrace Salvation Army will give out 500 backpacks filled with school supplies for kids for the annual school supply drive.
The public is asked to help out by donating supplies or a monetary donation.
Backpacks will be packed with items Aug. 27 and will be ready for pickup at the Salvation Army here from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 28, 29, 30 and 31.
Parents are asked to bring identification for their children, who they’re getting a backpack for.
Staples is taking donations of money and school supplies for the annual school supply drive too.
The items in the backpack are two pens (blue or black ink), two pencils, one red pen, a ruler, whiteout, a Bible, paper, two Duo-Tangs, three exercise books, an eraser and a glue stick.
Any extra items will be divvied up among the backpacks.
