Tools for School logoSummer is far from over, but it’s not too early to help children prepare for the upcoming school year.

You can help kids in your community by donating school supplies at select Shopko stores in Minnesota (see list of stores at bottom).

The retailer’s annual “Tools for School” drive runs July 8–Aug. 10, when donations of notebooks, pencils, markers, and other classroom essentials will be collected in specially-marked donation bins inside participating stores.

Donating school supplies is a simple way to make a big impact. 

A child picks out a backpack“Many low-income families barely have enough money to pay for rent and groceries – let alone school supplies,” said Lt. Col. Lonneal Richardson, leader of The Salvation Army Northern Division. “Giving free school supplies to these families reduces their stress and allows children to start the school year focused and prepared. We thank Shopko for this partnership.”
