With only a couple of weeks left to prepare for the upcoming school year, thousands of people flooded the stores during this tax-free holiday weekend, crossing off a number of school supplies of their lists.

This weekend, D.E.S.K volunteers were out in front our two Wal-Mart locations, on Sherwood Way and 29th Street, asking for the publics help in raising money and collecting school supplies for local teachers and students.

Last year, D.E.S.K volunteers collected $70,000 and over 200 cases full of school supplies for our young people to utilize during the school year.

Volunteers are collecting supplies for grades Kindergarten through 12th; they will be in front of both Wal-Marts again Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
