School supplies are expensive. How would you like to help kids in our area receive a much needed backpack just in time for the new school year? It's the Back to School Backpack Drive and donations are being accepted now through Monday, August 7, 2017.  

According to a flyer, all you have to do is drop off a new backpack at the little red schoolhouse inside the lobby of the Heritage Plaza Nursing and Rehab Center located at 600 West 52nd Street, Texarkana, Texas.

Then be sure to join the fun Monday, August 14 from 1PM to 3PM as the Texarkana Texas Police Department will be on hand to distribute the backpacks. There will also be food and sno-cones available for purchase. Donations will be accepted there as well.

If you would like someone to pick up your donation or if you would like more information please call (903) 792-6700.
