Spokane Salvation Army

The Salvation Army of Spokane – Backpacks for Kids


Parents of children who plan on receiving FREE backpacks with school supplies at The Salvation Army of Spokane Corps’ 13th Annual Backpacks for Kids event on August 17th are asked to register online in advance of the big day.

The Salvation Army, in collaboration with Nomnom Washington, will distribute 4,000 new backpacks with school supplies to local students, grades K-12, from 9 am to 6 pm (or until they run out, whichever occurs first) on that day.

Pre-registration will eliminate time in line for parents on distribution day when children are allowed to choose their own backpacks for the new school year. Online registration is fast and easy. Please visit

This community event will take place on The Salvation Army’s campus at 204 E. Indiana Ave., Spokane 99207. There will also be community vendors on-site.
