Bartell Drugs promotes School Tools Donation Drive, August 1-28

Drive helps students in need

SEATTLE - Bartell Drugs welcomes donations of school supplies and hygiene products for its 14th annual School Tools event, in partnership with Star 101.5 and World Vision. Donations will be accepted at all Bartell Drugs locations from August 1 – August 28.

The drive supports students in 160 schools in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties through World Vision’s Teacher Resource Center in Fife. Donated items help re-stock the center, where teachers “shop” free of charge for supplies to assist qualifying students.

As many as 58,000 local students could begin the school year without the basic school supplies, according to Federal Way-based World Vision, a globally-recognized charitable organization.

Donations of basic school supplies and hygiene products can be made at Bartell Drugs locations. Monetary donations, dedicated to the drive, can be made by visiting beginning August 1.

We’ve also added a handy text-to-give option for individuals to help fund this worthy project. To donate $10.00 through text message, text “SCHOOL” to 777444.

Suggested donation items found at Bartell Drugs locations include:

  • Pens and #2 pencils
  • Glue and glue sticks
  • Markers and crayons
  • Highlighters
  • Notebook paper
  • Spiral notebooks
