Having the right school supplies can mean the difference between a passing or a failing grade. Many families do not have the resources to purchase school supplies and teachers often spend their own money to buy supplies for their students.

Please join Publix Super Markets to help students and teachers by participating in the Publix Tools for Back to School Program. Tools for Back to School displays will be located near the registers with tear off tickets valued at $5, $7, and $10. Tear the ticket and give it to the cashier during check out. The amount will be added to the grocery order. Customers donating to Tools for Back to School will receive a specially designed reusable bag. School supplies, including notebooks, crayons, color pencils, markers, notebook paper, folders, scissors and glue, will be shipped in bulk to non-profit organizations and schools in North and Central Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee.

The Tools for Back to School campaign runs July 24 through August 13 at over 1,000 Publix Super Markets.
