The start of school is right around the corner and you can be a hero to students in your community by donating school supplies to the 2012 WFMY News 2 Tools for School campaign.
WFMY News 2 is holding its Tools for School drive through August 31, to ensure that each and every student has what they need to succeed in the classroom. Unfortunately, the need grows every year. Many local families struggle to make ends meet, let along send their children to school with the proper supplies. In addition, cuts to school budgets make it difficult for educators to fill the gaps in school supplies.
Donation bins are located all across the Piedmont at Walmart stores, and can be found at Guilford County and Rockingham County YMCA Branch locations.
This year the Boy Scouts from the Old North State Council have taken the challenge to fill 300 Tools for School collection bins. They are distributing collection bins throughout their 8 county district.
