GREENSBORO, N.C. -- WFMY News 2 has launched the 18th anniversary of its Tools for School campaign, in which the community comes together to collect school supplies for students in Triad school districts.

Since 1996, more than 488,000 students have benefited from supplies collected during the campaign.

Starting now through August 31, anyone can drop off school supplies in the "Tools for School" bins while shopping at participating Walmart stores. Also, this year, Schiffman's Jewelers has collection bins in its Greensboro and Winston-Salem stores. There are additional collection sites all across the Triad (locations listed below).

All school supplies collected through "Tools for School" stay in the communities in which they are collected, for distribution by local school systems.

This year WFMY News 2 invites any businesses, churches and civic organizations to hold a "Tools for School" collection drive. Contact Guilford Education Alliance at 336-841-4332 or The Volunteer Center at 336-373-1633 to obtain need posters and collection bins.

Schiffman's, Walmart, The Health Insurance Store, The Village at Brookwood, The Volunteer Center and Box Board Products are partners of the "Tools for School" campaign.
