Summer has only begun, and already The Salvation Army is hard at work preparing for back-to-school. Soon, hundreds of kids in the Greater Mankato area will need backpacks, notebooks, pencils, and other school supplies that their families cannot afford. Whether you need school supplies or want to donate them you can learn more call Leslie at 507.344.9261.

The Mankato Salvation Army will be serving Blue Earth County or North Mankato students K -12 (no preschool/no college) with some of the school supplies needed to begin the school year. Program registration requires parents to register households in person, and are required to show a government issued ID and proof of government assistance, such as an EBT or UCare card to be eligible for free supplies.

Pre-registration is required. If you are unable to pick-up on the day of distribution, you will need to prior make arrangements to prevent your supplies from being redistributed.
