The Salvation Army Back To School Drive benefits hundreds of children in our Amarillo area each year. Last year they were able to provide over 400 children with school supplies, a brand new pair of shoes, and socks to enter into the school year. Saturday, July 30th, 2015 at Walmart (5730 W. Amarillo Blvd.) from 11:00am – 2:00pm, The Salvation Army will be taking a collection for school supplies. They will be giving away free hotdogs for parents who donate new supplies and a free ticket to the bounce house that’s on location for their children. Viva Media will be airing live, have games available, and they will also be giving away prizes.
