Salvation Army seeks donations for backpacks and shoes for needy students

July 9, 2012


The Salvation Army and its Women's Auxiliary are seeking donations and applications for their annual school backpack and shoe distribution for needy children.

Last year, each child in the program received a backpack and a pair of new shoes, at an average cost of $40 per applicant. The Salvation Army is accepting donations through Aug. 1. Donations can be sent to the Salvation Army, 946 N.H., Lawrence, KS 66044, to the attention of Lt. Marisa McCluer, or dropped off at the office.

Checks should be made payable to The Salvation Army.

Available spots in the program are limited based on the amount of funds received, and people interested in applying should call the Salvation Army at 843-4188.
