Help students start the school year prepared

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Businesses throughout Albany are collecting school supplies for kids as they return to school.     Hook 100.9, a new Christian music radio station, is coordinating the collection of supplies for Northside and West Town Elementary Schools and Merry Acres Middle School.     They need everything from notebooks to pencils.    

Tanner Deen Nissan is one of the drop-off locations for school supplies.  Todd Deen said, "With the economy being in the state that it is right now, it's tough on parents, especially if you have more than one child to try and get supplies, get them back into school, so if people can pitch in to help out, it's always a good thing."    

The drive continues through next Friday.  Here's a list of drop off sites:

Toyota of Albany, Tanner Deen Nissan, Kia AutoSport, Parker Music, The Dance Company, Goodie 2 Shoes, Elements Coffee (Ledo), Live Naturally, Corner café, Tony's Gym, Westwood Church

HOOK FM will begin School Supply Drives in Worth and Ben Hill County on Monday August 9. Drop off locations can be found here.
