Events | FAMOUS DAVE’S Back to School Supply Drive is Back
This July, Valley Famous Dave’s locations will once again team up to help in a Back to School Supply Drive to benefit Southwest Human Development. People are encouraged to drop off new school supplies and new backpacks to help families and children in need.
“We want to lessen the pressure on some family’s budgets through this annual supply drive,” said Annette Sutfin of Southwest Human Development Arizona’s largest nonprofit dedicated to early childhood development. “With the support of the community and our partners, we hope to collect enough school supplies to provide more than 500 families with what they need for their children to enter school ready to learn.”
People can drop off NEW items at any of the four Valley Famous Dave’s locations during normal business hours between July 1-July 31st.
As a special incentive during this school supply drive, if you donate a NEW, book size backpack at one of the Valley Famous Dave’s locations, you will receive a voucher for a free Smoked Brisket sandwich. One per person. We are also collecting other school supplies needed.
