Broward County’s Largest Back to School Drive Starts July 8th

Tools for Schools, Broward County’s largest back to school drive, is kicking off on Monday, July 8, 2019, and BrightStar Credit Union is one of this year’s proud participants. The Tools for Schools drive is organized by the Broward Education Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to transforming the lives of Broward County Public School students through the support of quality education.

The drive is a community effort between the foundation and public and local businesses, including BrightStar, with the goal to provide low-income Broward County students with the necessary supplies needed to continue their education. Donations will be accepted between July 8th and August 16th.

Necessary school supplies include: composition books, dry erase markers, rulers, 4 oz. glue bottles, washable markers, notebook paper, index cards, pink rectangular erasers, and backpacks. All BrightStar Credit Union locations in Broward County will serve as drop-off locations for school supplies that will be donated to the Tools for Schools drive.
