BACK-TO-SCHOOL DRIVE 2022
AUGUST 5TH - AUGUST 7TH
Donate supplies to children in need or join us as a volunteer at the Danville Walmart store for our annual Back-to-School Donation Drive, to benefit the children and teachers in Vermilion County.
The back-to-school season can place a tremendous burden on families, especially for those parents hit hard by inflation, making them choose between paying rent, buying food, or purchasing school supplies for their children.
This is THE BEST time to buy school supplies per
Senate Bill 157
which lowers the tax rate on school supplies in Illinois
from 6.25% to 1.25% for only 10 days
starting Aug. 5th
- Shoppers can purchase supplies and drop off in the collection bin at the front of the store.
- All donations collected in Danville will be distributed to local families to ensure more kids will enter the school year prepared to succeed in 2022.
