Tools for Schools is a great success

To the editor:

The Tools for Schools program, run by the Salvation Army and Price Chopper food stores, generated thousands of dollars worth of school supplies for area students. Supplies were distributed to Lake Placid, Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake students, and given to students whose families are financially strapped.

Many thanks to all of our area residents who so graciously respond to requests such as this and continuously support community needs. Special thanks to Price Chopper for its involvement in this program year after year and its partnership with the Salvation Army in the Tools for Schools program.
