Lowes Foods is set to begin the back to school celebration this year by giving away one hundred iPod Shuffles to their customers. Over the next two months, Lowes Foods will hold three giveaways geared toward children and their parents preparing to start back to school routines. The first Back to School iPod Shuffle giveaway will be held from July 13 through August 2.

Customers can also visit Lowes Foods stores and find tons of school supplies already on sale from notebook paper to pencils to scissors. Also, new this year to Lowes Foods is the donate a backpack program. Customers can purchase a backpack already filled with school supplies for themselves or they can choose to donate one to less fortunate children.
