It took all of 30 minutes to distribute 300 backpacks full of school supplies in Spokane, Washington. Then, volunteers put leftover crayons, notebooks, pencils, and other back-to-school stuff into 344 paper bags and distributed that too!

Captain Kyle Smith, the local leader of The Salvation Army, says that the families who were in a position to donate school supplies last year are in line to receive them this year. So now, the Army in Spokane is out of school supplies. Completely. Unless we step in to help.
