Campaign provides back-to-school goods
The Road Home Apple Tree Campaign is seeking the public’s help to provide back-to-school items for more than 100 underprivileged children living in The Road Home, a Salt Lake City family homeless center. According to a press release, people can go to one of several retailers in Salt Lake City — including Old Navy, Staples, Payless ShoeSource, DownEast and Intrepid — and purchase back-to-school items and donate them. The program runs through August 11. "Purchasing one extra item while doing your back-to-school shopping makes a big difference and will give each deserving child a boost of confidence and help them have a positive start to the new school year, "said Chris Thomas, president of Intrepid, in the release.
