With the rise in North Texas school districts that have a high volume of students in need, Soulman’s Bar-B-Que is teaming up with Dallas radio station, 94.9 KLTY, to coordinate donations of backpacks and school supplies at all of their 21 North Texas locations.
Soulman’s Bar-B-Que Director of Marketing, Baylea Wood, says, "We are strongly committed to the communities we serve. In the spirit of back-to-school and access to great education for each and every child, we are opening our doors to anyone who wants to gather new school supplies, fill as many backpacks as they can and bring them to any of our collection boxes. Our goal is to get as many supplies and backpacks to students in time for the first day of the 2019-2020 school year."
Drop-offs are available now at all 21 DFW Soulman's locations.
Soulman’s and 94.9 KLTY are hosting a Kick-Off Event from 10 a.m. to noon on August 3 at the Rowlett Chamber of Commerce. Additionally, there are four live remote broadcasts scheduled in August at the Soulman’s Bar-B-Que locations in Southlake (10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on August 5), Wylie (11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on August 6), Mansfield (5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on August 7) and Royse City (3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on August 9).
Soulman's Bar-B-Que is honored to support education in North Texas through numerous initiatives. Throughout the year, Soulman's Bar-B-Que hosts events that benefit their neighboring schools. Coupled with fundraising for booster clubs, auction donations, team meals and Spirit Nights, Soulman's is a proud sponsor of education in North Texas.
For more than 40 years, Soulman’s Bar-B-Que says they have satisfied the hardest to please bar-b-que lovers - Texans. Founded in Pleasant Grove, Texas in 1974, Soulman’s had only a few simple goals - serve great Texas style BBQ and offer friendly, sincere service. Soulman’s original family recipes are still the foundation for the company’s success from their eight different meats that are smoked "low & slow" over only hickory wood to their famous homemade sides, including Ranch house beans and Texas style cream corn. Throughout the years, this family-owned and operated company has remained true to their original strive for success and customer satisfaction and is honored to be considered one of the Top Bar-B-Que Chains in America (2018). Soulman’s currently owns and operates 21 North and East Texas locations in Addison, Allen, Cedar Hill, Forney, Garland, Greenville, Hurst, Hurst- Grapevine Highway, Lancaster, Lewisville, Mansfield, Mesquite, Quinlan, Rockwall I-30, Rockwall Goliad, Royse City, Southlake, Sulphur Springs, Terrell, Van and Wylie.
