Through your contributions and support, the 17th annual Tools for School Campaign provided over 11,800 students in the Alberta Capital Region, and 300 students in Slave Lake, with the supplies necessary to start the school year ready to learn.
Thank you to each of our sponsors and supporters, Friends of Tools for School, the advisory committee of 13 participating school boards, the many workplace and corporate collection locations, and each of YOU, for your outstanding support.
Through your individual donations of thousands of school supply items, $5 at the Staples till, or your contribution of time to build backpack kits at our InKind Exchange - TOGETHER you have provided 12,118 backpacks to children in need.
I am fortunate to work for an organization that believes that through our collective action, lives truly can be changed. And I am so proud to live in a community that offers help to the people who need it most.
On behalf of the many children and families Tools for School continues to help, THANK YOU!
