There will be a School Supply Drive held at both Hamilton Place and Northgate Mall now through Aug. 8.
"We’re collecting supplies for students K-12, from pens, pencils and calculators to notebooks, binders and backpacks. The drive benefits all Hamilton County Schools to help ensure students throughout the area are ready for the classroom," officials said.
Find drop-off bins here:
• Hamilton Place: Lower Level Center Court & Upper Level near H&M; and
• Northgate Mall: Center Court.
"While you’re dropping off supplies, be sure to take advantage of Tennessee’s Tax-Free Weekends," officials said. "From July 31 through Aug. 2, clothing and other back-to-school items up to $200 may be purchased tax free. From Aug. 7-9, restaurant food and drink will be tax free for your dining convenience.
"Thank you for helping us make a difference in the lives of Hamilton County students."
