Famous Dave’s Back to School Supply Drive

Posted on: June 26th, 2018 by Press Release No Comments

This July, Valley Famous Dave’s locations will once again team up to help in a Back to School Supply Drive benefiting Southwest Human Development, Arizona’s largest nonprofit dedicated to early childhood 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 families’ budgets through our annual back-to-school drive,” says Annette Sutfin of Southwest Human 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, unused school supplies at any of the four Valley Famous Dave’s locations during normal business hours from July 2-31.
