Kids In Need Foundation (KINF), a national, non-profit organization dedicated to providing free school supplies to economically disadvantaged school children and under-funded teachers, is partnering with Walgreens to collect new classroom supplies for schools.

From July 29 through Aug. 18, customers can donate new school supplies and classroom needs at any in-store collection bin as part of the Walgreens Back to School Supply Drive.  Needed items include paper, crayons, scissors, pencils, glue, markers, folders and erasers. 

Kids In Need Foundation has 27 resource centers across the country.  Here, teachers from low-income schools can “shop” for free school supplies for their students and for other classroom supplies and teaching aides. At the end of the national school supply drive, these centers will collect donated supplies from area Walgreens locations.
