Summary: Beginning Wednesday, July 19 through Tuesday, August 1, shoppers can visit any North Texas or Louisiana Kroger store to donate a pre-packaged Backpack Boosters school supply kit. Donations will benefit Tarrant County schools, including Fort Worth ISD. Shoppers can purchase kits for $7 featuring pencils, markers, notebook paper and other classroom essentials or donate $1, $3 or $5 dollars at the register to help local students have a great school year.

The two-week collection drive aims to equip thousands of students with the necessary tools for the 2017-2018 academic year.

It is vital to a child’s academic progression to have the proper school supplies.

The Backpack Boosters school supply drive will help fill the gap and prepare nearly 70,000 students for the year ahead.
