Carino’s Italian Restaurant is sponsoring a campaign to supply back-to-school items for various schools throughout Texas. The “Stuff the Backpack” program will benefit DeZavala, Crockett and Travis Elementary Schools in San Marcos.
The donations suggested are 8 oz. white glue, supply or pencil boxes, #2 pencils, crayons, 12-inch rulers, wirebound notebooks, blue or black ball point pens, notebook binders, folders with pockets and backpacks.
Carino’s is offering a free kids meal along with a “teacher’s treat” free dessert coupon to patrons who bring in supplies. The public can bring in supplies until Aug 30.
In support of this program, Mayor Susan Narvaiz issued a proclamation for August to be “Stuff the Backpack Month” in San Marcos.Email | Print
