All of Bartell's 56 locations will be accepting donations of school supplies through August 30.
"School Tools for Kids in Need" Program-helping to fill the school supply needs for children in the Puget Sound area.
WHAT: Bartell Drugs and World Vision launches the 6th Annual "School Tools for Kids in Need" program to collect school supplies for children in need at all 56 Bartell Drug locations now through August 30.
THE NEED: This school supply drive is especially important as 58,000 local children would
begin the school year without the basic school supplies needed to succeed if it weren't for this much needed program. Teachers, whose students qualify for the free or reduced-price lunch program, are able to "shop" for school supplies for these children, all free of charge.
Basic Needs List suggestions found in Bartell's "School Aisles" include:
* R. Geddes Crayons - 24 colors
* School Works Kids Scissors - Pointed or Blunt
* Bic Cristal or Round Stic Ink Pens - 10 pack.
Blue or Black
* Elmer's Glue - Glue-All or School Glue/4 oz.
* Paper-Mate #2 Pencils - 20 count
* Avery Glue Stic/2 pack - Acid-free, photo-safe,
* Pentel Hi-Polymer Erasers - 3 pack
