There are two ways to help send school supplies to local students in need. Shoppers may donate $7, which pays for a pre-packaged Backpack Boosters school supply kit including pencils, markers, notebook paper and other classroom essentials. Shoppers may also donate $1, $3 or $5 at the register when they pay for their groceries.
Dallas ISD students will be among the 13 school districts receiving the donated supplies.
This year, the goal is to raise $500,000 to fund the donation of supplies to more than 71,000 students in the participating districts. In 2016, more than $475,924 was collected to benefit nearly 68,000 students.
