Ruby’s Back to School Supplies Drive

Ruby’s Back to School Supplies Drive


It’s officially Back to School Season, which means it’s also time for the Ruby’s Diner Back to School Supplies Drive! We’re so excited for the opportunity to support schools in our local communities and hope you’ll join us in our effort to make an impact on the lives of children earning their education.

Each one of our Ruby’s Diner locations participating in our Back to School Supplies Drive will be working to achieve their goal of filling 5 backpacks with a full set of school supplies. This means pencils, pens, paper—the works! It’s all important stuff and we’ll be collecting it in big white bins inside our locations. When you bring in your school supplies, be sure to ask a Ruby’s Diner team member where you can donate. In return, we’ll give you a Buy One Entrée, Receive One for Free coupon as our thanks to you!

The Back to School Supplies Drive will start on September 1, 2017 and end on September 30, 2017, so we have a full month to get these supplies ready for the organizations that will be delivering them to kids. Keep reading to see who we’re donating to, what the school supplies list, and our full list of participating Ruby’s Diner locations!
