Lubbock Independent School District and other area school districts are partnering with United Supermarkets for a school supply drive in the weeks leading back into the school year.

From July 24 to August 12, barrels will be placed in front of all Lubbock United Supermarkets, Market Street and Amigos locations as part of their Project SOS: Supply Our Students initiative. Customers can also make a cash donation during their checkout.

To begin the event, a shopping spree involving various superintendents of Lubbock area school systems will take place Thursday, July 24 at United Supermarket’s 82ndStreet and Boston Avenue location.

According the LISD, each school receiving donations will directly  issue the supplies to families in need.
