In preparation for a new school year, Regions Bank in Demopolis will host a “Tools for Schools” supply drive in partnership with the Demopolis Board of Education July 20-31.

“We know that times are tight for parents, teachers and our public schools,” said Mike Evans, Demopolis branch manager for Regions Bank. “The ‘Tools for Schools’ supply drive is an easy way for our customers and associates to show support for local students and our hard-working educators.”

The Demopolis branch will accept donations of school supplies to be distributed to local public school classrooms in the fall. Any new school items will be accepted, and a list of suggested items is available at the local Regions branch.

“The Tools for Schools supply drive will help provide much needed items for many children whose families can’t afford to purchase them,” said Dr. Neil Hyche, Demopolis Schools superintendent. “Every donation, large or small, will make a difference, and we appreciate Regions for providing a convenient way for the public to support our students and teachers.”
