The start of the school year brings a nervous excitement for children of all ages. Will there be a lot of homework? How will they like their teachers? Some children have other worries. Will they have the supplies they need for class projects and homework?
 
UWTC’s Tools for School program is a collaborative effort between local businesses and individuals to provide children in grades K-12 with new backpacks full of grade-specific school supplies from crayons to calculators and everything in between.
 
You can give children the tools they need by donating school supplies or backpacks, sponsoring a child or packing backpacks full of the supplies so all children begin the school year ready to learn.

3 EASY WAYS YOU CAN HELP

1.) Donate - For each $25 donation, we will purchase the supplies and backpack and assemble it ourselves or

2.) Sponsor A Child - Click on the Sponsor A Child link and choose a one or more children to sponsor. Purchase the items on the list and a backpack to match the childs description or

3.) Volunteer - Come lend a hand as we sort and assemble backpacks for each child on our list

 

Last year alone we partnered with 85 community sponsors
and distributed to 20 community agencies
to provide over 2,095 backpacks to neighborhood children.
