Wayne Salvation Army Unit Offering Back-To-School Supplies For K-8 Students

WAYNE – As families prepare for a new school year, the Wayne Salvation Army Unit will be there to help with costs on school supplies.

According to a release, these back-to-school expenses can be challenging for many families.

The Wayne Extension Unit of the Salvation Army is again sponsoring the Back-to-School Project offering families with students in grades K-8 a variety of school supplies and a backpack free of charge.

The project helps to meet the needs of families and children by providing numerous, but not all needed school supplies.

Officials with the Wayne Salvation Army care for those in need. Salvation Army reinvests the funds raised from the Bell Ringing Campaign into the community through various projects such as the Back-to-School project. The Salvation Army Unit also receives support from the area Wayne Community Chest (formerly United Way).

Parents are asked to register their children by emailing  sarmy.wayne@gmail.com or call 402-375-4946, Calvary Bible Church by Friday, August 6. Distribution of the supplies and backpacks will be Monday, August 9 at Calvary Bible Church from 4 – 7 p.m. in the church’s lower level.

The supplies will be given on a first come first serve basis.
