Profile by Sanford will be collecting donated school items through the end of August

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – One local business is making it a little easier for students going back to school.

Profile by Sanford will be hosting a school supply drive, collecting all sorts of back-to-school items through the end of August. This marks the second year the business is hosting such an event. Last year saw quite a number of supplies collected, prompting them to host another drive this year.

A variety of items are needed, from backpacks to colored pencils- all supplies are being accepted. All donated school items will be going to Tank Elementary in Green Bay.

“I can’t imagine the look on a kid’s face if they see a child next to them with the supplies and they don’t have them- that’s heartbreaking,” said Steve Roth, General Manager of Profile by Sanford of Green Bay. “So I wanted to do something about that and hopefully we can help make an impact with that.”

If you’d like to donate, all you have to do is simply drop-off any supplies at Profile by Sanford. They’re located at 2621 S. Oneida Street in Green Bay and are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. They will be accepting donations until the first day of school.
