Back-To-School Supplies

Starting a new school year may be a thrill of many kids, however it can also cause anxiety and stress for families when they are faced with the expense of buying new supplies. Many families struggle with paying for the school supplies that their children need, and many kids unfortunately go without basic back-to-school necessities.

This is where The Salvation Army can help. The Salvation Army provides kids with school supplies, a backpack, and really confidence as many kids are able to obtain the right ingredients and items that are needed for success in the classroom. Many families that need help with obtaining school supplies for their children can get assistance from the Salvation Army. Our organization offers qualified families a number of resources provided in partnership with major retailers, while other Back-To-School programs are administered directly by us. We are also supported by a number of volunteers and volunteer organizations, partnerships, local and national businesses. Families with children of school age (K-12) - and meet the low income level requirement - may apply to receive back to school supplies every year before school starts. Distribution dates in Renton are held during the last week of it's Kids Summer Meal program, which concludes in early August.
