This year the City will be partnering with the Salvation Army to kick off their annual Pack to School Drive to provide school supplies and backpacks to 15 Valley School and 17 Salvation Army programs. There will be donation boxes located at each event entrance where we will be collecting backpacks, rulers, pencils and notebook paper. Due to the heat, please do not donate items that can melt.
