Salvation Army back-to-school supply drive

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The Salvation Army is asking for the public's help sending children in the community back to school, with much needed school supplies.

They are asking people to donate school supplies at one of two places on Wednesday. The first is at the Salvation Army (1001 N. Richey Blvd., Tucson) near Speedway just east of Country Club, or at a second location in Oro Valley.

The second donation site will be accepting school supplies from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Fry's (10661 N. Oracle Road) near First Avenue and Oracle Road.

Donation organizers are looking for folders, rulers, pencil sharpeners, glue sticks and erasers, though no donation is too small. There will be a Salvation Army kettle out as well, for those who would prefer to make a monetary donation instead.

The children these donations will go to need the extra assistance; their parents cannot afford to buy the school supplies, so they do not have the items needed to start the school year.

The Salvation Army wants to help all children be prepared and successful in the classroom.

For more information on donating, please contact Shawna Kroh at (520) 795-9671.
