For the 12th consecutive year, The Salvation Army Spokane, in collaboration with nomnom Convenience Stores, will distribute 4,000 backpacks with school supplies to local school children, grades K-12, at its ‘Backpacks for Kids’ event on August 11 at The Salvation Army. Throughout July, nomnom will collect funds at its convenience stores to help with this annual school event. Customers are encouraged to make a donation and as a thank you, will receive a coupon for a free 20 oz. fountain soda or 20 oz. coffee. Everyone who donates can also add their name to a special flyer that will be displayed in the local stores.
