The Washington Salvation Army Hosts Superhero Drive-Thru Event

Jul 7, 2021 | by Stephanie Rex

July 6, 2021 (Washington, PA) – Capes are not required for the heroes who will support local youth July 17, as The Washington Salvation Army hosts a Superhero Drive-Thru event to raise funds for back-to-school supplies for students and families in need.

The event will take place at Camp Agape in Hickory, Pa. from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, July 17. There, kids of all ages will have a chance to meet their favorite superheroes and princesses, take photos, and enjoy the scenic trails of Camp Agape. 

Real-life heroes – local first responders – will also greet guests. There is no fee to attend, but a suggested donation of any amount upon entrance will support the purchase of back-to-school items for local children in need this fall. 

For those who cannot attend but would like to make a financial donation they can be made online at: A $25 donation will provide a backpack and school supplies while a $60 donation will supply shoes for a child in our community. Any donation amount will directly impact the life of a child.  

Funds raised at the event will be used to purchase backpacks, essential school supplies, and brand-new shoes for area school children whose families have especially been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic over the last year. 

“This event will be fun for the whole family, and it supports our local neighbors in need,” said Captain Amber Imhoff, Commanding Officer of The Washington Salvation Army Worship and Service Center. “We encourage families to come out, meet their heroes, and take some memorable photos along the way. We hope the Superhero Drive-Thru will provide a light-hearted getaway for the afternoon.”

The Washington Salvation Army thanks its sponsors: GBU Life, CHROME Federal Credit Union, Citizens Bank, UnitedHealthcare, Good Orthodontics, Three Rivers Royalty, Crossgates, Washington Crown Center, Washington Financial, and Kid Mania.

Donations can be mailed, shipped, or dropped off: The Washington Salvation Army Worship and Service Center, 60 East Maiden Street, Washington, PA 15301. Donations can also be made online here:
