This August, help us collect school supplies for local kids.
In Western Washington, the 2021 school year will likely look a bit more ‘normal’, with many of our students returning to in-person learning. This means it’s once again critical that we support the estimated 58,000+ local students that will begin the school year without basic school supplies.
This year, Bartell’s continues its commitment to supporting families and students in our local communities and beyond, with the 19th annual School Tools supply drive will support.
The items collected during the donation drive will include gloves, masks, hand sanitizer, toiletries, personal care items, nonperishable food, and basic school essentials. With the help of local school counselors, students and families who may benefit from this program are identified and World Vision volunteers deliver food and essentials kits to them directly.
In our 19th year of School Tools, World Vision will be distributing donation kits to students and schools across the King, Pierce and Snohomish counties. The items in these kits will include basic school supplies, PPE, personal care items and more. These supplies will stay local and support families near their local Bartell Drug store. World Vision’s long-term relationships with 174 schools in our local communities, will allow your donation at Bartell’s to reach the children that need it the most.”
– Michael Gillespie, Sr. Director at World Vision
