Please join Kroger Dallas division for its annual Backpack Boosters school supply drive, which benefits underserved students in independent school districts in DFW, East Texas and Northwest Louisiana.
Beginning today, July 17 through July 30 Kroger customers can purchase pre-packaged school supply kits, which includes items such as scissors, glue, pencils etc. Once the campaign has concluded, donations will be distributed to disadvantaged schools in pre-selected local school districts across Kroger Dallas Division’s operating territory, including North Texas, East Texas and Northwest Louisiana.
“Kroger is not only dedicated to Feed the Human Spirit, but also Feed the Future of our children living in the communities we serve. Regardless of a student’s socio-economic environment, no child should go without the tools needed to succeed in the classroom. The Backpack Boosters school supply drive helps fill the gap and prepare thousands of students in need for the year ahead,” remarked April Martin Nickels, manager of corporate affairs, Kroger Dallas Division. “Last year we raised more than $642,000 in supplies and donations and hope to exceed that goal this year.”
Since the Backpack Boosters program launched, Kroger Dallas division has expanded the program to reach more school districts with a high volume of students in need.
2019 BackPack Boosters partners include iHeartRadio, KDFW Fox 4, KDFI My 27 and Coca-Cola®.
