1,800 Local Students Receive Free Back-to-School Supply Kits from Bryant & Stratton College

“Book Bag Bonanza” gives students the school supplies they need to start the school year right

Online PR News – 05-September-2012 – Buffalo, NY, September 04, 2012 – At “Book Bag Bonanza” events yesterday, Bryant & Stratton College’s three Western New York campuses gave a total of 1,800 free back-to-school supply kits to local students of all ages. The kits were provided in partnership with Promotional Images and included a single subject notebook, a three-subject notebook, highlighter, eraser, folders, pens and pencils, packaged in a Bryant & Stratton College book bag. Originally the College planned to distribute 1500 kits (500 at each campus); however, due to such an overwhelming response, Bryant & Stratton College gave an additional 300 kits away.

“At Bryant & Stratton College we want to support the communities we serve and offering book bags filled with school supplies seemed like a great way to help get students of all ages ready for the new school year,” said Paul Bahr, Director of Bryant & Stratton College’s Western New York Campuses. “We hope that these back-to-school supply kits will help students get the tools they need to start the year off right.”

The Book Bag Bonanza events were promoted through local schools and community groups in the Western New York area. For more information about Bryant & Stratton College, contact one of the campuses:
