Yes, summer is in full swing, but metro youth will be back to school before we know it! Now is the time to Shop for Good and provide the items local nonprofits need to help their program participants start the school year off on the right foot.

These local nonprofit organizations expect to serve 6,500 students and assist with their school supply needs. Your support is needed and so appreciated! If you, your family, organization, school or company plan to participate in this Back to Supply Drive, please allow us to thank you by filling out this form.

Let us thank you!
