AAA Mid-Atlantic Collects Supplies to
Help Local School Students 

Locations in the Philadelphia five county region to participate 

PHILADELPHIA, PA (August 21, 2018) – While no one is ready to think summer is over quite yet, the reality is that back-to-school time is coming soon.  In an effort to help local schools, AAA Mid-Atlantic will collect school supplies through August 26 at locations within the Philadelphia 5-county region, including its retail and car care centers. 

The campaign, “Building Blocks to Support Our Future Members,” encourages AAA associates, members and the general public to donate new, unused school supplies. The local schools supported by the collection drive are chosen by AAA associates and after the donations are collected, AAA associates will deliver the supplies to their chosen school.

AAA cares deeply about the communities in which we live and serve,” says Jana Tidwell, manager of Public and Government Affairs. “AAA aims to ensure that students have what they need when they get to school, which takes pressure off children and families and gets the school year started right.”

AAA members and the general public are invited to participate by bringing new and unwrapped school supplies to the following AAA locations in the Philadelphia region:
