"Menu Runners" Giving School Supplies to Kids

By  | 

Odessa- Kids are about to head back to the classrooms, but some families wonder how they’re going to be able to afford everything their children need for school.

That’s why the community is stepping up to support those in need.

Menu Runners is holding a school supplies drive this whole weekend at the East Side Wal Mart in Odessa. The supplies and money they receive will all go toward getting school supplies for children in Ector County Independent School District.

“What we wanted to do was be able to put a face to our company and really be able to give back to the community, it’s in the roots of our company,” said co-owner Preston Wimberly.

Wimberly said for every person who downloads the Menu Runners app this weekend, the company will donate a dollar toward buying school supplies.

So far today, they've got enough school supplies for about 100 students.

If you'd like to help local students, Menu Runners will be at Wal Mart again tomorrow from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
