Donate at your local Cenex Zip Trip for annual ‘Backpacks for Kids’ event

SPOKANE, Wash. — The Salvation Army of Spokane is partnering with Cenex Zip Trip to distribute 4,000 backpacks with school supplies to local school children, grades K-12 for the 11th annual ‘Backpacks For Kids’ event.

But they need your help to do it.

During the month of July, Cenex Zip Trip 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’, contributors will receive a coupon for a free 20 oz. fountain soda or coffee.

Everyone who donates can also add their name to a special flyer that will be displayed in the local stores.

The ‘Backpack for Kids’ event will be at the Spokane County Fair & Expo Center on August 12.
