Be­gin­ning on Aug. 10, Su­per­store set up do­na­tion bins for school sup­plies at their store and also had their cashiers ask cus­tomers if they would like to do­nate to the cause. The funds raised help top-up the back­packs that were do­nated with any school sup­plies that were needed. In all, 44 back­packs were filled through the pro­gram and given to stu­dents city-wide. “We’re very happy. The gen­eros­ity of the com­mu­nity is fan­tas­tic,” Bowles said. “We wanted to make sure ev­ery kid had the school sup­plies they needed for a suc­cess­ful school year.”

This is the first year of the pro­gram and both the Sal­va­tion Army and Su­per­store are hop­ing to see it grow in fu­ture years.
