Tools for School Program

The Outreach Centre and United Way of Central Alberta present Tools For Schools, a program to collect and distribute school supplies for families across Central Alberta who have children in Kindergarten to Grade 12, who otherwise could not afford their own materials. 

Last year we gave out over 1723 backpacks filled with basic school supplies for kids going to school.  This  program relies fully on donations of supplies and money to make sure that these kids have everything that they need to succeed in school.


A valid health care card and proof of income will be required when applying for Tools for School
