Woodland Mall is helping local students get the supplies they need to start their academic year out strong through a partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids Youth Commonwealth. While visiting the mall Aug. 1-Sept. 6, shoppers can drop off new backpacks and other school supplies at a donation bin.
The mall will also host a Back-to-School Get Together event on Saturday, Aug. 20 featuring a notebook decorating station, music, games and fun for all ages. Shoppers who stop by the event with a donation will be entered into several giveaways for gift cards from retailers. FOX 17 has more details.
