CIS is working with three Wal-Mart locations — 6520 Ernest Barrett Parkway. in Marietta, 1133 East West Connector SW in Austell and 4166 Jimmy Lee Smith Parkway in Hiram.
“There are many students in our area who do not have the necessary school supplies to start school and this can affect them having a successful school experience,” said Carol Fey with CIS. “This Back to School Supply Drive will help to provide those much needed supplies and give everyone in the community an opportunity to help provide for those needy students in our community.”
Items needed include packs of paper, glue sticks, boxes of crayons, packs of pencils and spiral-bound notebooks.
The supply drive will also feature a “Build a Backpack Twitter Sweepstakes,” where CIS will give away backpacks filled with school supplies provided courtesy of Wal-Mart.
Supplies can also be dropped off at the CIS office at 316 Alexander St., Suite 5, in Marietta.
