Beginning August 12th, families in need of school supplies may call any of the Salvation Army locations to set an appointment to come by and get supplies.

Project Teacher operates a resource center for teachers to come and receive school supplies for free. In 2018, the supplies Project Teacher received was enough for 182 classrooms to receive core supplies (so roughly 3600 students). The funds were used to secure and pay for the freight from a national donation which meant that nearly $150,000 in ADDITIONAL supplies were brought into our resource center to be distributed throughout the school year.
