Bartell Drugs is taking donations of school supplies and hygiene products for its 15th annual School Tools event, in partnership with Star 101.5 and World Vision. Donations will be accepted at all Bartell Drugs locations through Sept. 2.

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.

Last year, more than $55,000 in cash and supplies were collected through the program, providing thousands of local students the basic school supplies they need to start the year off right, according to Federal Way-based World Vision, a globally-recognized charitable organization.

Donations of basic school supplies and hygiene products can be made at all Bartell Drugs locations. Monetary donations, dedicated to the drive, can be made by visiting www.bartellsschooltools.com.
