Donate to Tools for School!

Donate school supplies at participating Walmart stores to help Triad kids prepare for success at school.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Triad students are heading back to school which means it's time for WFMY News 2's 25th annual "Tools for School" campaign! You can help make sure they have the supplies they need to succeed! 

You can lend a helping hand by dropping off school supplies in the "Tools for School" boxes while shopping at participating Walmart stores. You can also invite your business, church, or civic organization to hold a "Tools for School" collection drive.  

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

Since 1996, more than 675,000 students have benefited from "Tools for School."

Walmart, Box Board Products, Walker's Express, Inc., and the NC Department of Health and Human Services are proud partners of the 2022 WFMY News 2 "Tools for School" campaign.

WFMY News 2 is doing a one-day Tools For School collection drive on Wednesday, August 24. Come see us at the Walmart located at 3738 N. Battleground Avenue in Greensboro to donate new school supplies. We'll be there from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The "Tools For School" campaign runs through September 5.
