11th Annual Backpacks for Kids: Drive-Through Style


Spokane County Fair & Expo Center
404 N. Havana St., Spokane, WA 99202

Wednesday, August 12, 2020 - 9am - 6pm

During the month of July, Cenex Zip Trip will collect funds at its convenience stores to help with this annual school event. Customers of Cenex Zip Trip 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.

In the past nine years, Cenex Zip Trip has raised more than $400,000 for Backpacks for Kids. Since its inception in 2010, The Salvation Army has distributed more than 40,000 backpacks to local youth; allowing children to return to school with the tools needed to assist in their educational growth. “We are very thankful to have this wonderful partnership with Cenex Zip Trip!,” said Major Ken Perine of the Spokane Salvation Army. “This partnership benefits our local school children. When kids are prepared for the school year, their performance in the classroom improves.” Major Perine also thanks the Spokane County Fair & Expo Center for the use of its parking lot during this social distancing pandemic.

Various Cenex Zip Trip convenience stores in Spokane and surrounding communities are participating in this campaign.
