Walgreens and United Way partner to provide school supplies
August 21, 2013, By Marla Blair, Administrative Director, United Way of Logan County, Walgreens and United Way of Logan County are partnering to assist students as they begin the new school year. Customers may purchase school supplies and place them in boxes provided at the front counters of Walgreens, 603 Woodlawn Road, through the end of August.
“We’ll collect all the supplies customers are willing to contribute,” said Ron Ackerman, Manager of the Lincoln Walgreens. The local store is promoting the project inside the store and reminding customers with signage to purchase school supplies for the project up to August 24.
But Ackerman stated, “If supplies continue to be added, we can leave the collection boxes out for a few more days. The scheduled pick up is the last week of August, so customers are welcome to come in and be part of making a difference for the kids.”
Marla Blair, Administrative Director, United Way of Logan County, will collect the supplies and distribute them to schools in Logan County, to help teachers provide necessary supplies for students.
