13th Annual Backpacks for Kids

The Salvation Army
222 E Indiana Ave.

Wednesday, August 17, 2022 - 9am - 6pm

For the 13th consecutive year, The Salvation Army Spokane, in collaboration with nomnom Convenience Stores, will distribute 4,000 new backpacks with school supplies to local school children, grades K-12, at its ‘Backpacks for Kids’ event on August 17th at The Salvation Army.

To help with this major event, nomnom will be collecting funds at its convenience stores. Customers of nomnom are encouraged to make a donation. As a thank you, contributors will receive a coupon for a free 20 oz. fountain soda or 20 oz. coffee. Everyone who donates can also add their name to a special flyer that will be displayed in the local stores.

nomnom has raised close to $500,000 for Backpacks for Kids over the years. Since its inception in 2010, The Salvation Army has distributed 49,000 backpacks to local youth; allowing children to return to school with the tools needed to assist in their educational growth. Customers can donate to the Backpacks for Kids campaign by visiting any a participating nomnom store in Washington or Idaho. For more information about The Salvation Army Spokane, visit: www.makingspokanebetter.org.
