LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (August 1, 2012) - Every child should start school with all that they need for a successful academic year, and on an even footing with their peers.
That's why the Salvation Army is filling backpacks with all the necessary supplies to get all needy children a good start for the school year.
But the need your help to stuff 100+ backpacks! Donate new school supplies at the Pack-A-Backpack event this Saturday, August 4 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Promenade at Chenal.
With a donation, you'll receive great discounts and save even more on your purchases during Arkansas' tax-free weekend.
There will also be a free photo booth, Museum of Discovery Mad Scientist, games, giveaways and more.
