Collecting School Supplies For Children In Need

Back To School Drive Walmart 2016

The Salvation Army Back To School Drive benefits hundreds of children in our Amarillo area each year. Last year we were able to provide over 400 children with school supplies, a brand new pair of shoes, and socks to enter into the school year. Saturday, July 30th, 2015 at Walmart (5730 W. Amarillo Blvd.) from 11:00am – 2:00pm, The Salvation Army will be taking a collection for school supplies. We will be giving away FREE hotdogs for parents who donate new supplies and a FREE ticket to the bounce house (on location) for their child(ren). Viva Media will be airing live, have games available, and they will also be giving away prizes.

People can still contribute by making school supplies donations. There are 6 places around town for individuals to drop off school supplies between July 1st – July 29th, 2016:
