KOAA News5 and Chick-Fil-A Back to School Supply Drive

Posted at 11:49 AM, Jul 25, 2022

KOAA News5 and Chick-fil-A are joining forces to make sure students in our area go back to school with the school supplies they need.

From August 1st through August 15th, you can drop off donated school supplies at 6 Chick-fil-A in southeast Colorado.

With inflation driving up the costs of everyday items, families feel the pinch. School supplies can be especially expensive.

You can help by purchasing supplies from our suggested supply list below, and when you visit Chick-fil-A before Aug. 15, you will find a convenient drop-off box right inside the store.

Thank you for supporting our students and teachers by providing the tools they need to succeed!
