#172vt Back to School Drive

Posted On July 13, 2015 By | No Comments on #172vt Back to School Drive

COTS is proud to partner with KeyBank, Kinney Drugs, Staples, WCAX, and Star 92.9  on the #172vt Back to School Drive!

In response to the 172 homeless children in Chittenden County, we launched the #172vt campaign as a call to action. This community driven #172vt Back to School Drive directly addresses the needs of these children.

You can help a child in need, beginning with just a pencil. KeyBank is donating 172 backpacks, and we need your help to fill them up! Let’s make this year a year when no child needs to worry about having enough supplies to make it through the school year.

Please donate July 15 – Aug. 31. You can donate items at participating KeyBank, Kinney Drugs, and Staples locations. Each branch or store will have a collection bin dedicated to the drive.
