MARANA — Everyday the beginning of the next school year is getting closer.
Two Marana businesses have again partnered up to host a school supply drive.
Tompkins Family Chiropractic and Jabez Hair and Nail Salon started collecting school supplies on June 1 and will continue at their businesses until July 21. The drive ends with a grand Stuff the Bus event from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., on July 21 and 22 in the Wal-Mart parking lot.
“Each year because of your giving, our office has been able to help hundreds and sometimes thousands of children experience a better start at school,” Tompkins wrote on his website promoting the event. “This project is not a success because of one person, it is through the efforts of many that we are able to help so many kids. If lots of people give a little, we can help the masses. The supplies you donated last year went to 16 Marana School District schools and served thousands of children last year. Thank you for all your help.
If anyone would like to donate to give children much needed supplies, please bring your school supplies to Tompkins Family Chiropractic, 7620 N Hartman Lane, Ste 124-2, or Jabez Hair and Nail Salon, 3900 W Costco Dr # 140.
