Tools for School Program

Tools For SchoolsAbout the program

The Outreach Centre and United Way of Central Alberta presents Tools for School which aims to reduce one known barrier preventing children and youth from successful learning and participation in school. School supplies are collected and distributed to families across Central Alberta who have children in kindergarten to grade 12, who otherwise could not afford to purchase supplies. Thousands of backpacks are filled with basic school supplies to ensure students have the tools they need to succeed in school.

Host A Product Drive

Start a collection! The success of this program is dependent on donations which we receive from individuals in our community and corporate sponsors. Make a difference and help us collect supplies so we can guarantee that students in need can start the school year on equal footing with their peers.
