H.U.G. (Help Us Give), the volunteer group that strives to give back to the community, is teaming up with AJ Backpacks and Supplies to collect school supplies for local children. Beginning July 1, H.U.G. will be holding a Back-To-School Supplies Drive that will run through July 13. School starts July 24.
Charlie Wise & Larry Stover, owners of Lost Dutchman Realty, located at 1075 S. Idaho Rd. Suite 300 in Apache Junction, have been giving away filled school backpacks to area students since 2011.
H.U.G. members, working with local businesses, will be collecting school supplies to be distributed at the Lost Dutchman office. From July 16 through July 20, students may visit the office and pick out a new, filled school backpack.
