GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The start of school is right around the corner and you can be a hero to students in your community by donating school supplies to the 2013 Tools for School campaign.
WFMY News 2's Tools for School campaign aims to equip students with the tools necessary to thrive in the classroom.
Throughout the month of August, you can drop off school supplies in the Tools for School bins while shopping at Triad area Walmart stores. There are also additional drop-off locations.
New this year! - We are inviting businesses, churches, and civic organizations to organize their own Tools for School collection drive. It's easy to organize a school supply collection drive.
All of the school supplies collected through Tools for School are distributed to students in the school systems in the communities where the supplies are collected.
Schiffman's, Wal-Mart, The Volunteer Center, and Box Board Products are proud partners of the Tools for School campaign.
