Bank of America is partnering with the local nonprofit Back-to-School Clothing Drive to help Valley students prepare for the 2012-13 school year by collecting new or unopened school supplies at more than 100 banking centers in the Valley from July 25 through Aug. 3.
Special collection boxes will be placed in every branch and all items collected will be distributed by the Back-to-School Clothing Drive organization. This is the seventh year of the partnership.
Items being collected include: rubber erasers, pencil sharpeners, child-safe metal or plastic scissors, glue sticks (no glue bottles), notebooks, crayons, rulers and books for ages 5-12.
