The Boys & Girls Club of Dane County is partnering with Walgreen's Pharmacy to collect school supplies for all Dane County youth until the close of the business day on Friday, Aug. 26.
Each year, the Boys & Girls Club of Dane County helps hundreds of local youth prepare for school by giving each a backpack filled with new school supplies.
Last year, the BGCDC filled more than 300 backpacks with the help of generous donors, supporters and community partners. This year, it hopes to exceed this number through the partnership with Walgreen's and a Back to School community rally held on Sunday, Aug. 28.
At the Back to School Rally children will have the opportunity to receive back-to-school haircuts and makeovers, listen to music and enjoy food provided by community partners.
The rally will take place at both Boys & Girls Club sites at 2001 Taft St. and the Allied Family Center at 4619 Jenewein Road on Aug. 28 from 2 to 6 p.m.
