Kennewick Business Collects Backpack Donations For Schools

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- It's back to school season and one local business is helping students who can't afford to get new school supplies.

Coldwell Banker is collecting backpacks and school supplies donations for children in the Kennewick School District.

This is the first year of the donation project and the business hopes to collect over 200 backpacks.

"The response we've had so far has been just over the top. It's been great. People coming in, they see the signage. They hear about it. They're dropping stuff off. Our expectations are far exceeded for this first year," said Travis Davis, Coldwell Banker.

Donations for the backpack drive will be accepted through August 16th at the Coldwell Banker office at 8836 W. Gage Boulevard Suite 101B in Kennewick.
