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.
local store is promoting the project inside the store and using
signage to remind customers to purchase school supplies for the
project up to Aug. 24.
But Ackerman said: "If supplies
continue to be added, we can leave the collection boxes out for a
few more days. The scheduled pickup 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 of 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.
