ATLANTA -- Parents and teachers know that having the right school supplies can mean the difference between a passing or a failing grade for students.
That's why Publix has teamed up with the United Way and several local partners to host the School Tools for Cool Kids program.
Residents can stop by their neighborhood Publix grocery stores from Monday, July 18 until Sunday, Aug. 14 to purchase and/or drop off school supplies in the School Tools bins.
"We encourage customers to donate school supplies to help . . . children begin the school year on a level playing field," said Brenda Reid, media and community relations manager for Publix.
