Salvation Army begins annual book bag program

CHRISTIANSBURG — Although the school year has officially ended, it’s never too soon to start thinking about the 2008-09 school year.
The New River Valley Salvation Army is offering its annual back-to-school Book Bag Program, created to help families who are concerned about being able to afford school supplies for their children.
Last year, 757 children in Pulaski, Montgomery, Floyd and Giles counties, along with Radford City, received a book bag filled with typical school supplies, such as notebooks, pencils, pens, etc., according to Shawn Elliot of the NRV Salvation Army. She noted all of these items were donated.
Starting today, families in the above mentioned areas who think that they might not be able to afford these items for their children are encouraged to fill out an application to receive help from this program. Applications will be accepted Tuesday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. from now until July 17 at the NRV Salvation Army office, located at 760 Roanoke Street in Christiansburg.
Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last.
All applicants must have a photo ID with current address or proof of address, such as a bank statement or bill sent to the address. Applicants need to bring identification for each child, such as a birth certificate, social security card or school ID.
For those who receive government assistance, it is necessary to show proof such as a food stamp card, Medicaid card, or a letter from social services. Those who do not receive government assistance may apply with proof of income and expenses.
Every applicant must bring the year-end report card for each child or a letter from the child’s school stating the next grade level (for each child).
For more information or questions, contact Shawn or Mary at (540) 394-1037.
