Pinellas County - It's that time of the year again and if you would like to help students get the tools they need to succeed, then why not donate during the Pinellas County Back to School Drive?

Did you know:

  • Over 2000 Pinellas children live in foster care

  • 1 in 5 Pinellas children live in poverty

So how can you help?  On July 25th from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. located at Franklin Templeton on 100 Fountain Parkway in St. Petersburg, all school supply donations will be accepted.  Here is a list of items that children will most likely need this year:

  • White glue
  • Scissors
  • Ballpoint pens
  • No. 2 pencils
