The Salvation Army’s Back to School Carnival and Backpack Giveaway was a Huge Success!

backpack July 2014

The Salvation Army’s annual back to school carnival and backpack giveaway was held this past Saturday, July 26th.  Staff and volunteers worked hard all week to make sure everyone had fun.  Over 300 guests attended and 131 backpacks were given away.  The backpacks were filled with school supplies donated by Mom’s Club of Munster.  “Watching all the children enjoying themselves was such a pleasure” said Emily Martinez, Youth Director here at The Salvation Army.  The children had two bounce houses, a dock pond, bowling and other games and prizes to keep them busy.  We had hot dogs and chips for all and American Licorice donated 100 lbs. of candy.  And the Hammond Optimist supports our backpack giveaway each year.  If you would like to make a donation to The Salvation Army please contact us at (219) 838-0380.  We are located at 8225 Columbia Avenue in Munster, IN 46321.
