Aaron’s in Sulphur Springs is hosting a School Supply Drive to benefit local schools and children in need of school supplies. All school supplies will be sanitized before delivery to those in need. The business began accepting supplies on Aug. 5 and will continue to collect them through Aug. 21.
As an added incentive for people to give, Aaron’s has partnered with numerous local businesses for a basket raffle featuring gift cards and donated items from community merchants. Winners will be drawn at 5 p.m. Aug. 21.
To be entered in the basket raffle, individuals only have to bring in any new, unopened schools supplies to the Aaron’s Sulphur Springs store, 1402 Mockingbird Lane. The contributors’ name will be entered into the raffle drawing once for every 2 items donated to the school supply drive, and 4 entries per backpack. For example: 10 items would result in 5 entries, and a backpack would garner 4 more.
Two winners will get gift baskets full of gifts and gift cards from businesses in the community.

“This one is special to us, we would like to give this one to a family in need. We know times are hard and we really want to give back. For this, we are asking for each raffle participant to nominate a family that could use this blessing, along with a short reason of why. We are so excited to be able to have the chance to help out our schools and children get the school supplies they need! A huge thank you to all the business that donated️,” event organizers wrote in notice sent to KSST.
