Help The Salvation Army prepare local children in need to go back to school.

Each week, nearly 100 children from across Upper Pinellas County gather at The Salvation Army for character-building activities. For many of these families, purchasing Back to School supplies is considered a luxury.

Throughout the month of August, The Salvation Army is accepting donations of new school supplies for these children, as well as those who come to their Social Services offices seeking financial and food assistance.

Needed items include:

Pencils
Paper
3-Ring Binders
Composition Books
Backpacks
Glue Sticks
Crayons
Colored Pencils
Erasers
Rulers

Items can be dropped off, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., at The Salvation Army, 1625 N. Belcher Road, Clearwater, FL 33765.

The community’s support will help ensure that local children in need will start the school year off prepared and confident.
