The Salvation Army anticipates distributing School Supplies nearly 500 children this year.

“During this time of the year it is important to provide the necessary tools for education in order for our youth to have a good start to the school year.” Stated Major Jamie Pennington, Corps Officer. “No child should be left out when it comes to having the necessary components for school such as a backpack, pens, pencils and notebooks.” Added Pennington.

In addition any students needing supplies are encouraged to sign up beforehand this Wednesday July 27 and Thursday July 28 from 10:00 am to noon and 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

In addition to the signing up for the distribution The Salvation Army is actively soliciting donations. Items particularly needed are backpacks and notebooks.

Items may be dropped off at any area Shopko, and The Salvation Army during normal business hours (2625 Potter. St., Lincoln.)
