For over twenty years, The Salvation Army Hampton Roads Area Command, with the help of our community partners and donors, has worked to ensure that children in Hampton Roads start the new school year with the “Write Stuff”. The Write Stuff Backpack Distribution is a two-day drive-thru style event taking place at The Salvation Kroc Center in Norfolk. Backpacks will be distributed to parents of local students in grades kindergarten through 12th living in Norfolk, Virginia Beach, and parts of Chesapeake. Households living in Portsmouth and Chesapeake zip codes 23321/23323 were asked to contact our Portsmouth office for assistance in those areas.

Thank you again to the corporate and community donors that made it possible for local children in need to receive a backpack filled with school supplies through the Write Stuff Backpack Campaign.
Take a look back at distribution day to see how the community came together to make this mission happen.
