Are you ready for a Challenge? I am so excited to announce a Local Opportunity for you guys to get involved in the community and donate to Families in Need!

Starting this week we are seeing some Amazing Back to School Deals and Prices and this is a HUGE opportunity to grab some extra school supplies that are really inexpensive and help families in need in Northwest Arkansas.

The Great Giveaway will be held Saturday, August 6th in the George Jr. High Parking Lot in Springdale.

This is a Free Event where Members of the Springdale Community can come and collect items they need including school supplies, gently used children’s clothing, coats, food and more. This is a great time to clean out your kids closets and donate any unused clothing from last year, or clean out your stockpiles and donate toiletries, and food to those who need it.

This is a Non-Profit Community Event and I would love for you to be involved!  You can help by grabbing a few extra school supplies over the next few weeks and donating them to families who can’t afford them. This is an awesome way for us to use our Savings Abilities to help those in our community, and regardless of where you live I’m sure that there are schools who would love to have some extra school supplies.

You can also “Like” The Great Giveaway on Facebook to keep up with the details.
