Salvation Army preparing for back-to-school drive
The Salvation Army is kicking off its Back to School Drive.
The program is aimed at providing local, low-income school age children and their families with essential supplies as the school year approaches. “
We are looking to the generosity of the community to be able to help with this year's program,” Maj. Orville Chambless said.
According to Chambless, the program is set to help an estimated 400 students, depending on the donations received.
Donations can be monetary or actual school supplies and can be dropped off at the Salvation Army, located at 811 W. Fifth. School supply lists can be found at Wal-Mart and H-E-B in the school supply section or on the school districts' websites.
