Kicking off on Saturday, August 17, shoppers and event attendees are invited to help to fill a Honda Odyssey with school supplies. Those interested in donating supplies are welcome to drop off donations at the vehicle, located in Center Court at Meadowood Mall, between August 17 and August 21.

The monetary donation in combination of the collected school supplies will go where they are needed most, to the schools and children in our community.
