Advance America Centers Host Give Back to School Drives
Since the beginning of July, Advance America centers across the country have been collecting supplies, including books, snacks and box tops, to donate to local schools.
These “Back to School Drives” are a part of Advance America’s longstanding commitment to giving back to the communities it serves. The company works year-round with more than 100 local non-profit organizations and national foundations to promote academic achievement, job training, financial literacy and involvement in the electoral process, among other programs.
Several local newspapers have featured stories on these drives and provided details on how to get involved:
