Tools for schools for 3 FREE workouts

Angie Arms, certified Master Trainer, is offering 3 FREE sessions in exchange for school tools for low income students.  This is a great deal as the normal rate with a Master Trainer is $90 an hour!! 

Donations for school supplies are down this year and we want to do our part.  Did you know that many students do homework by flashlight or candle light because they don’t have the basic luxury of electricity?  What about the kids who can’t turn in homework because they don’t have lined paper?  Many teachers have reported personally buying school supplies for their classroom.  Where do these angels get the money on their income? 

So bring a school supply to Angie and get 3 Free workouts!  

When:  Tues.-Thurs., August 18, 19, 20th.

School Tools for Kids in Need” Program—helping to fill the school supply needs for children in the Puget Sound area

WHAT:Bartell Drugs and World Vision launches the 6th Annual “School Tools for Kids in Need” program to collect school supplies for children in need at all 56 Bartell Drug locations from August 10 to August 30.

Federal Way-based World Vision, a globally-known charitable organization, is constantly collecting and housing school supplies for local children in need.

THE NEED: This three-week school supply drive is especially important as 58,000 local children would begin the school year without the basic school supplies needed to succeed if it weren’t for this much needed program. Teachers, whose students qualify for the free or reduced-price lunch program, are able to “shop” for school supplies for these children, all free of charge.

Basic Needs List suggestions found in Bartell’s “School Aisles” include:

  • R. Geddes Crayons – 24 colors
  • School Works Kids Scissors – Pointed or Blunt
  • Bic Cristal or Round Stic Ink Pens – 10 pack. Blue or Black
  • Elmer’s Glue – Glue-All or School Glue/4 oz. bottles
  • Paper-Mate #2 Pencils – 20 count
  • Avery Glue Stic/2 pack – Acid-free, photo-safe, permanent, washable
  • Pentel Hi-Polymer Erasers – 3 pack
  • Avery Poly Binders – 1/2” or 1” sizes
  • Buffalo Erasers – 25 pack Cap Erasers or 4 pack Pink
  • Avery Hi-Liter Markers – Yellow or Pink

WHEN: August 10 to August 30, 2009

PARTNERS: Bartell Drugs, World Vision and Star 101.5 FM

WHERE:All 56 Bartell Drugs Locations in King, Pierce and Snohomish Counties

  1. Thank you all in advance for your generous support of this program. And a BIG thank you to Angie for offering up her terrific services for FREE in exchange for school supplies! It is amazing how many children and families in our area can’t afford a new notebook or pack of pencils. Our marketing team has experienced the effects of this program first hand, and to see the smiling face of a child receiving a new backpack full of supplies reemphasizes how important this drive is.

    A great BIG thank you to all!

    • Thank YOU Jennifer! If there is any way we can support your staff please let us know. I think this is fantastic way to give back to our community. Let me know if any of your staff would like to be guests at any of our sessions. We have locations and times in Renton, Kent, and Federal Way. One of our trainers also has a group that meet in Bellevue’s Downtown Park for during lunch (www.VictoryGetFitClub.com). It would be our pleasure to serve you and your staff!
