Who among us doesn’t like a good back-to-school sale? But if you stumble across a great discount somewhere and find that you’ve purchased more than your family can use, consider donating to Canyons District’s 4th annual school-supplies drive.

Canyons’ annual summer Gathering for Good donation drive is joining forces with one of Utah’s most popular radio stations, Z104 KSOP and the Salt Lake Board of Realtors to collect school supplies for students in need. 

Join us as we take part in the three-day “Tools for School” event. Giving is easy. Just drop off your donations in the south-end parking lot of The Shops at South Town  August 7, 3pm-9pm; August 8, 8am-8pm; and August 9, 8am – noon  and say hello to Z104 radio personalities Dave and Deb who will be spending their nights at the shopping center in buses and broadcasting live all three days. 

Out of town that week? No matter. Any day during business hours, leave your donations in the colorful bins located in the entryways of Canyons District’s Administration buildings or drop them off at any Les Schwab location.
