The Salvation Army of Spokane and Nom Nom collaborate for 12th Annual ‘Backpacks for Kids’ event

For the 12th consecutive year, The Salvation Army of Spokane, in collaboration with Nom Nom, will distribute 4,000 backpacks with school supplies to local school children, grades K-12, at its ‘Backpacks for Kids’ event on August 11th, at the Salvation Army Campus at 222 E. Indiana Avenue, Spokane, WA 99207.

During the month of July, customers can stop by a local Nom Nom and give a monetary donation to help with this annual school event.  As a thank you, contributors 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.  

In the past eleven years, Nom Nom has raised more than $450,000 for Backpacks for Kids.

Since its inception in 2010, The Salvation Army has distributed more than 44,000 backpacks to local youth; allowing children to return to school with the tools needed to assist in their educational growth.

“We are very thankful to have this wonderful partnership with Nom Nom!,” said Major Ken Perine of the Spokane Salvation Army. “This partnership benefits our local school children.   When kids are prepared for the school year, their performance in the classroom improves.”
