Publix and DCEF work together to make sure students will have “Tools for Back to School “

Publix began their “Tools for Back to School” campaign last week.  The goal is to give more students a chance to excel in their studies by making sure they have the necessary “tools”.   Too often, parents don’t have the money to prepare their children with basic learning materials. Many times, teachers use their own money to provide these resources.  Publix is working to assist  the school  system by providing these essential tools for learning: crayons, pencils, notebooks, washable markers, colored pencils, filler paper, pens, folders, scissors, and glue.

You may donate at the register or purchase needed items and place in the box at the front of the store.  Your contributions to “Tools for Back to School” will help the students and ultimately the schools.
