SISTERS, Ore. -

Sisters' Les Schwab Taylor Tire Center is now hosting the "Tools for School" school supplies drive.

The following new school supply items are needed: 1.5-inch three-ring binders; 3x5, 4x6 and 5x8 index cards; composition notebooks; wooden rulers with inches and centimeters; colored pencils; colored markers; three-ring zip pencil pouches and pencil boxes; Fiskars scissors; Prang and Crayola watercolor paints (cheaper, low-quality paints are not usable); glue sticks; two-pocket folders; yellow highlighters; college-ruled notebook paper; pens; pencils; dry-erase markers; and white erasers.

School supplies collected will be distributed to students in need at the Sisters Family Access Network (FAN) office located in the Sisters School District Administration building at 525 E. Cascade Ave. Distribution will take place the week of August 25 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
