Salvation Army Drive at Walmart
Monetary donations will also be accepted by going up to the red Salvation Army van parked outside of the store.
"It's very important," said Salvation Army Captain John Merchant. "Everybody knows right now the economy is pretty tough, and even the middle class has been hit really hard this year. We see a lot of increases in all kinds of social service help going from food to clothing, rent and utilities."
If you can't make it out to Walmart tomorrow, the Salvation Army accepts donations at their Corning location at 32 Denison Parkway. The backpacks will be distributed on September 2nd.
