Today through July 28, Kroger Dallas division is hosting its annual Backpack Boosters school supply drive, which benefits underserved students in independent school districts in DFW, East Texas and Northwest Louisiana.
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’s Backpack Boosters school supply drive is even more essential this year as families throughout the communities we serve continue to be impacted by the current health crisis. We firmly believe that regardless of a student’s socio-economic environment, no child should go without the tools needed to succeed in the classroom, whether that classroom is located in a school building or virtually from home,” remarked April Martin, corporate affairs manager, Kroger Dallas Division. “The Backpack Boosters school supply drive helps fill the gap and prepare thousands of students in need for the year ahead. Last year we raised more than $550,000 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.
