Kitz 4 Kidz distributes 259 Kitz for area students in need

    Drumheller residents came out big for local students supporting Riverside Value Drug Mart’s Kitz 4 Kidz campaign.
    This was the eighth year for the program, which is run in Value Drug Mart locations. It is a community initiative where school supplies  are collected for children who are not able to start the school year with the basic needs.
    Customers could purchase pre-selected school supplies, donate funds, or purchase ready made “Kitz” made up of all the supplies needed. These supplies are then given to local schools, where they are used in the classroom or distributed discreetly.
    In all, Riverside Value Drug Mart store collected 259 kits, and last week they distributed half to Greentree School and half to St. Anthony’s School.
    In all, this year Value Drug Marts have collected and distributed more than $20,000 worth of school supplies across B.C. and Alberta; this equates to 3,000 Kitz, all collected in just four weeks.
    Leading up to this year’s campaign, the program has distributed more than $130,000 worth of school supplies.
