July 2 - August 9 7 Can Help Kids Back To School Backpack Program


The Salvation Army and KETV 7 Can Help Kids are teaming up for the 20th annual Back To School Backpack Program!


Each year, our partners collect new backpacks and school supplies to provide thousands of children with the tools they need to succeed in school.

New school supplies being collected are: backpacks, crayons, markers, colored pencils, rulers, glue, erasers, spiral notebooks, two-pocket folders, pencils, pens, theme paper, reusable water bottles, tissue, and bottles of hand sanitizer.

Special thanks to our premier sponsor Methodist Health System, location sponsors Fun-Plex Waterpark & Rides and Wendy's, and additional sponsors Sweet 98.5, Pay-LESS Office Products, Barnhart Press and Firefighters on the Move.

Items are being collected now through August 9. Find your nearest drop-off location in the map below.
