TOOLS FOR SCHOOL PROGRAM
The Outreach Centre and United Way of Central Alberta present Tools for School, which aims to reduce one known barrier preventing children and youth from successful learning and participation in school. Annually, Tools for School provides backpacks and school supplies to students in kindergarten through Grade 12 whose families have limited resources. While the school supplies included may not exactly match your school’s supply list, they’re a great start. The success of this program is dependent on donations, which we receive from the community and/or corporate sponsors.
