Give the Tools to Prepare
a Child for School

We Help kids in the Omaha area
start the school year off right.

All donations from The Salvation Army 7 Can Help Kids Back to School Backpack Program and Stuff the Bus will provide Omaha area children the help they need to go back to school prepared.

The Salvation Army 7 Can Help Kids Back to School Backpack Program

The Salvation Army and KETV 7 Can Help Kids team up each year to collect new school supplies. The Back to School Backpack Program provides thousands of children with backpacks and school supplies at locations across the metro. Since 1998, more than 200,000 children have been provided with the help they need to go back to school with confidence.

The 2020 premier sponsor is Methodist Health System. Our location sponsors are Metro Credit Union and Bucky's. Additional sponsors are Sweet 98.5, Pay-LESS Office Products, Barnhart Press and Firefighters on the Move.


Stuff the Bus

For the past two years, we have collaborated with Walmart to collect school supplies at select stores around the metro. Stuff the Bus donated items are distributed to kids and families in need in our community.

Check back next year for more information on Stuff the Bus 2021. 



Needed supplies include glue, crayons, markers, erasers, backpacks, spiral notebooks, 2-pocket folders, pencils, pens, theme paper, bottles of hand sanitizer, reusable water bottles, tissues and colored pencils.

Backpack Distribution

This year's distribution has concluded. Check back next year for information on the 2021 backpack program!
