Salvation Army hosting school supply drive


School starts in a few weeks, and the Salvation Army of Greater Baton Rouge is asking for your help as they prepare for its annual school supply drive at the end of the month.

“They can go to Target [and Walmart] or any of the local stores,” said Major Donald Tekautz, with the Salvation Army of Greater Baton Rouge.  “They all have sales going on right now. [You can] buy some things that your kid may need and we will all get the backpacks and give it to the kids who need them.”

The school supply drive will be held on July 28, 2018 at the Salvation Army’s Brookestone location: 6401 Bluebonnet Blvd Ste #1034, Baton Rouge, LA 70836.

The event starts from 11AM to 1PM.
