WFMY News 2's 23rd Annual 'Tools For School' Drive

The "Tools For School" drive kicks off on Tuesday, July 30th and runs through August 27th.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — It's time to think about back-to-school. 

WFMY News 2 is holding its 23rd annual "Tools for School" drive. 

It's all about providing basic school supplies to help children succeed in the classroom.

The "Tools For School" drive kicks off on Tuesday, July 30th and runs through August 27th. 

You can lend a helping hand by dropping off school supplies in the "Tools for School" bins while shopping at participating Walmart stores. 

You can also invite your business, church or civic organization to hold a "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" 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, and Walker's Express, Inc. are proud partners of the 2019 WFMY News 2 "Tools for School" campaign.
