Tools 4 School is an annual back to school event that provides school supplies, haircuts, medical and dental screening to foster children and children in low income families. In addition, the children enjoy a fun afternoon with lunch, games, crafts and other fun activities. Each child is given the opportunity to “shop” for school supplies. The kids bring their school supply lists and go through our special school supply store set up with donations from the community. With your help, we can make this happen. Read below for some ways you can make a difference in the life of a child.
