Area Walmarts are cooperating in an annual drive to collect school supplies for needy children July 17.
Supporters of SHAKE, Seniors Helping All Kids' Education, will be at the three Tri-City Walmarts collecting donations of pencils, paper, rulers and other school supplies and loading them on school buses.
Containers will be placed at businesses for donors to leave new or usable school supplies, including backpacks and binders.
Customers also can make financial donations to SHAKE at Walmart checkout stations.
For more information call the Volunteer Center at 509-582-0631.
