Tools for Schools program has distributed over 500 backpacks filled with school supplies to low-income children. Your business or organization can be a part of this community effort.

 

The Tools for Schools backpack giveaway program provides every student at participating schools a new backpack filled with new school supplies. For many of the children, these may be the only new items that they receive all year. The primary program goal is to ensure that students in the highest need schools have the school supplies needed to experience a more equitable education, achieve academic success, and grow into tomorrow’s successful citizens.

 

Research documents that when children have the school supplies they need to fully participate in school, they are more prepared to learn, achieve higher test scores, and have improved attendance. The families whose children attend the schools served by the Tools for Schools program cannot afford needed school supplies for their children.

 

In addition to your financial support, up to 20 of your employees will join their school’s community to pack and distribute backpacks at the sponsored school. This meaningful volunteer experience occurs in August just before or during the first week of school. This is direct engagement with students and teachers that provide a deep connection with your staff.
