Join the effort that has put more than 114,000 backpacks in the hands of students in need throughout our community over the past decade. Help level the playing field for every child and support an entire year of learning. Tools for Schools is much more than just a financial contribution, it’s a tangible opportunity to support local schools and connect directly with the community.
Participating sponsors provide backpacks filled with essential supplies for each student in a local school where 65% or more of the students are eligible for free or reduced lunch.
In addition to the financial support you provide, your company will have two meaningful volunteer experiences:
Your employees pack backpacks at Pack-a-Palooza, a friendly competition with fellow sponsors. Your team will be timed to see who can pack the fastest. This event is fun and action-packed and can support up to 20 members of your staff.
LATE AUGUST 2015:
Your employees will hand out backpacks to students at your sponsored school during the first week of class. This can be a high-impact engagement that provides a deep connection for your staff.
If you would like to learn more about sponsoring backpacks full of supplies for a school please contact us.
