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 1700 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.
