The drives benefit moderate to low income families who are burdened with the extra cost associated with back to school. The two non-profit organizations are in need of back packs, pencils, markers, crayons, glue, notebooks, pens and more.

Shannon Smithers with the Salvation Army says they’re partnering with 30 Shopko stores throughout Minnesota.
