Back to School Backpack Program Kick-Off

Back to School Backpack Program Kick-Off Image

Help us send Omaha metro area children back to school prepared.

Thank you for your previous support of The Salvation Army - KETV 7 Can Help Kids Back to School Backpack Program!  

Since 1998, more than 189,000 children were provided with the help they needed to go back to school with confidence by equipping them with new backpacks and school supplies. We are thrilled to partner with area businesses and we hope you will join us again this year to help thousands of children go back to school prepared. 

Once again this year, we’re hosting a FREE lunch for area businesses at our Back to School Kick-Off Party—and you’re invited!

Date: Friday, June 28
Time: 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (stop by anytime)
Location: NRG Studios, 5011 Capitol Avenue
Park in the NRG lot to the west of the building off of Capitol Avenue. 

The Kick-Off Party is designed to make it easy for you to stop by - have lunch on us - and pick up the school-supply collection box and poster for your business…all in one place! If you're not a current Community Collection Partner but are interested in being one this year, simply register online.

This is an easy way for your company to once again make a big impact in our community.
