Sleep Train stores collecting school supplies for foster children

Sleep Train is holding a school-supply drive for foster children that will run into early September.

The regional mattress retailer is collecting the supplies at all of its locations for the annual drive, which runs until Sept. 4. There are two Bellingham locations, according to the Sleep Train website: 4229 Meridian St. and 1315 W. Bakerview Road, Suite 101.

The most-needed school supplies are backpacks, three-ring binders, pens, pencils, flash drives, notebooks and loose-leaf paper, according to Sleep Train. Donations will be distributed to area nonprofit foster partner organizations.
