The needs for back-to-school at the Road Home are as great as ever. The 13th annual Road Home Apple Tree campaign will collect items for more than 100 children in The Road Home shelter.
The Apple Tree program helps these kids get a great start to their school year when otherwise they would go without new clothing, shoes and backpacks.
The organization needs the public’s help to fill these needs for these deserving kids to help make school a positive experience.
The campaign runs through August 2 with 16 locations across the Wasatch Front.
Individuals can pick an apple indicating a child’s need at any of the partner locations: Old Navy, Payless Shoes and Utah Eye Centers.
The program is collecting new clothing, shoes, socks, underwear and backpacks for the children living in the Road Home shelter.
For a list of locations or if you don’t have the time to pick an apple from the tree, you can make a donation at www.theroadhomeappletree.com.
