From 10 a.m.-4 p.m., North Lamar FFA will be at Kroger taking donations for Kroger’s Backpack Boosters – raising money for school supplies for local children.
Once Kroger’s promotion is over, the local company will take the donations and buy school supplies. Kroger has done this fundraiser for Prairiland, Chisum, North Lamar and Paris ISDs.
“These supplies will go back to the local schools to go to the kids who need school supplies,” said Stacy Hill. “We’ve had boxes and boxes that go out of here – anything from crayons and pencils to backpacks.”
Kroger will continue its Backpack Boosters until Wednesday.
