Atlanta, GA (July 11, 2016)– Starbucks and The Salvation Army in Metro Atlanta are partnering to help provide local students with much needed school supplies during their 2016 “Back 2 School Supply Drive” campaign. The campaign will serve families in need by helping kids from across Atlanta gear up for a successful academic year while also easing the high cost of school supplies for parents.
Supporters are asked to help by dropping off new school supplies including backpacks, notebooks, binders, pens, pencils, scissors, crayons, markers, glue, rulers and hand sanitizer at a participating Atlanta area Starbucks location through July 29.
“We want to thank Starbucks for once again helping us provide children with the essential supplies needed for success in the classroom,” says Metro Atlanta Area Commander Major Todd Hawks. “We hope our supporters will assist their neighbors in need by donating new school supplies to their nearest participating Starbucks store.”
