Bartell Drugs welcomes donations of school supplies for its 10th annual “School Tools for Kids in Need” now through Aug. 31 at 59 Bartell Drugs locations. The drive supports students in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties through World Vision’s Teacher Resource Center in Fife.
Donated school supplies will help re-stock the Teacher Resource Center, where teachers whose students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch programs “shop” free of charge for school supplies to help meet students’ needs.
According to Federal Way-based World Vision, as many as 58,000 local students could begin the school year without the basic school supplies.
“With so many area children lacking basic school supplies, there’s never been a more important time to support this drive .Over the past eight years we’ve appreciated the support by our customers and the public for their donations,” said Bartell Drugs Chairman and CEO George D. Bartell.
Bartell Drugs has two Lynnwood locations: 17633 Highway 99 and 3625 148th St. SW.
