backpacks For over twenty years, The Salvation Army Hampton Roads Area Command has been working with WVEC-TV 13News to make sure that Hampton Roads children get back to school with The Write Stuff. During the month of August, at locations throughout Hampton Roads drop-off barrels and boxes are available for the community to donate new school supplies to be distributed by The Salvation Army in the final weeks before school begins. Pertinent information can be found below or by calling 757-543-8100 ext 64249.
