‘Back 2 School’ Campaign Collects Essential School Supplies

Two-week school supply drive for Metro Atlanta’s less fortunate begins Monday

Kroger’s Atlanta Division, in partnership with the Children’s Restoration Network and WSB-TV, is holding its 18th annual “Back 2 School” campaign from July 16 – 28, during which 125 Kroger stores will serve as school supply drop-off sites to benefit metro Atlanta children.

Children’s Restoration Network, a local nonprofit agency focusing on homeless children in metro Atlanta, works with more than 130 shelters and group homes which house more than 4,000 youth each year, making success of this campaign vital.

“Children’s Restoration Network provides hope and support to families in our community as they work toward ending the cycle of homelessness,” Glynn Jenkins, director of communications and public relations for Kroger’s Atlanta Division, said in a statement. “We encourage our customers to participate in the ‘Back 2 School’ drive and help provide Atlanta’s with the tools necessary for academic success.”

Items requested for the “Back 2 School” drive, include: new and gently used book bags; wide and college-ruled notebook paper; spiral notebooks; three ring binders; pens and pencils; calculators; markers; scissors; file folders; rulers; crayons; glue; and dictionaries. Kroger customers can also purchase a prepackaged school supply bag at area metro Atlanta stores to make a donation.

In Midtown, Kroger stores can be found at 1700 Monroe Drive in Ansley Mall and at 725 Ponce de Leon Avenue. To find the Kroger store nearest you, visit www.kroger.com.
