Now through August 29 Bartells is teaming up with World Vision to collect school supplies for needy children. All donations in the “School Tools for Kids in Need” drive go to World Vision’s local Storehouses to benefit children and schools in King, Snohomish and Pierce counties.
From the press release:

* Acme Rulers
* Dixon #2 Pencils
* Bic Cristal or Round Stic Ink Pens — 10 pack. Blue or Black
* Elmer’s Glue — Glue-All or School Glue/4 oz. bottles
