Prekindergarten, kindergarten and after-school students at the Primrose School of Five Forks recently visited a Publix grocery store to shop for canned goods and nonperishable food items.

The purchase was made in support of the WXIA 11 Alive Can-A-Thon canned good drive, in which all Primrose Schools in the Atlanta area participate each year.

The students contributed to the effort in an age-appropriate way, school officials said. Older students helped by doing extra chores at home and hosting a bake sale to earn money for the shopping trip, and younger students decorated the boxes and shopping bags used to deliver the items.

Primrose School has 41 locations in the Atlanta area, including franchises located in Buford, Dacula, Duluth, Lawrenceville, Peachtree Corners and Suwanee.
