DULUTH, MN — After a rocky start, CHUM officials say they have passed their goal of 1,400 backpacks in their annual donation event.

You can pick up a backpack filled with school supplies at the following locations on August 22 from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m.:

  • Central Hillside Community Center – 12 East 4th Street
  • Morgan Park Community Center – 1242 88th Avenue West
  • Portman Community Center – 4601 McCulloch Street

Anyone requesting a backpack may need to show identification for each student, including:

  • School ID
  • Social Security card
  • Medical card
  • Birth certificate
