The campaign collects new back-to-school clothing and supplies for more than 100 children living in the Road Home. The Road Home is a Salt Lake family homeless shelter helping families when they are unable to provide a home for themselves.
The Road Home Apple Trees, located at Old Navy, DownEast, Payless ShoeSource, Salt Lake area Staples provide an opportunity for the public to select an apple with the name of a child and purchase a needed back-to-school item for him or her. The items, which should be new and unused, can be donated at any of the 32 campaign partner locations from Provo to Ogden.
New this year, you can also donate money through the Apple Tree website. 100% of the proceeds will go to buy any items that are needed and where not donated.
At the completion of the campaign, which runs through Aug. 12, the clothing and school supplies will be delivered to The Road Home before the school year begins.
