Student Backpacks – Please Donate Today!

“Tools for School”

Can you imagine sending your child to school without a backpack? Tools for school give foster youth and other children in need the best chance of catching up, building self-esteem, and getting excited for the new year. Because backpacks are expensive and wear out easily, they represent a difficult purchase. With your donations, we can help families and children in need today.
