Back-to-School Backpack Donations Continue in Iowa Through August 19Published: Aug. 11, 2015
Donate New Backpacks & School Supplies at Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital, Methodist Physicians Clinic - Risen Son
Methodist is once again a proud presenting sponsor of the KETV 7 Can Help Kids/Salvation Army Back-to-School Backpack Program.
This year's program has been highly successful, so far collecting more than 12,000 backpacks and other school supplies from Metro-area businesses and individuals for distribution to needy children in our community.
Collection has ended in Nebraska but continues in Iowa due to the later start of the school year and later backpack distribution date. Collection barrels are still in place for much-needed donations at Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital and Methodist Physicians Clinic - Risen Son in Council Bluffs.
School Supplies Needed: NEW Items Only
- Spiral Notebooks
- 2-Pocket Folders
- Lined Theme Paper (for 3-ring notebooks)
- NEW: Bottles of Hand Sanitizer
- NEW: Reusable Water Bottles
- NEW: Tissues
