Bartell Drugs is hosting its 11th annual “School Tools for Kids in Need,” school supply drive for local students who don’t have the items they need for the upcoming school year.

Through August 30, people can drop off donations at one of Bartell’s 63 locations, with the drive benefitting students from King, Pierce and Snohomish counties through World Vision’s Teacher Resource Center in Fife. Donations help restock the Resource Center, which teachers “shop” at at no cost to them for school supplies to assist qualifying students.

“With so many area children lacking basic school supplies, there’s never been a more important time to support this drive,” said Bartell Drugs Chairman and CEO George D. Bartell in a press release. Over the past ten years we’ve appreciated the support by our customers and the public for their donations.”

Particular supplies needed include, along with other items found in Bartell’s “School Aisles”:

  • Dixon #2 pencils
  • Scotch Kids’ Scissors – pointed or blunt
  • Crayola Crayons – 16 count
  • Avery Poly Binders –1” size
  • Tops Filler Paper 150 count, Wide or College,
  • Bic Cristal or Stic Round Ink Pens – 10 pack. Blue or Black

In Ballard, customers can bring their donations to one of two nearby stores, either 1500 NW Market St or 5605 22nd Ave NW.

    If you aren’t home much, have children under the age of ten, don’t
    enjoy chaos, or have a busy lifestyle which would prevent a ferret from roaming freely,
    then these pet are not for you. Instead of courting athlete’s foot, you should at least try to train your ferret to use a
    litter box. It comes in two forms: juvenile (usually found in ferrets
    under the age of 14 months) and classic,
    which is usually found in middle aged and older ferrets.
