The Salvation Army and KETV 7 Can Help Kids are teaming up to collect new school supplies.  Since 1998 more than 120,000 local children have been assisted through this program.  The need continues to grow.  Approximately one-third of local children live in poverty.  Many families continue to face economic hardships that prevent parents from purchasing school supplies for their children.

Every year, The Salvation Army/KETV Seven Can Help Kids Back to School Backpack Program provides thousands of children with backpacks, school supplies and free school health checks at locations across the metro.  The new 2013 premier sponsor is Methodist Health System.  Methodist physicians offer free student health checks on Saturday, August 10 at all distribution sites in Omaha.  New collection partners are local participating McDonald’s and Kaplan University.

The following items are needed:  backpacks, crayons, markers, rulers, glue, erasers, spiral notebooks, two pocket folders, pencils, pens and theme paper.

New school supplies are being collected now through August 6.  They can be dropped off at The Salvation Army Lied Renaissance Center (3612 Cuming Street), any Methodist clinic or hospital location, participating McDonald’s and Kaplan University.  Monetary donations can be made online at  You may also support the Back to School program by texting OMAHA to 80888 and make a $10 donation by phone.  Message and data rates apply.
