If more than half of the kids in our local schools can't afford lunch, it's unlikely that their families can afford school supplies. The School Tools program helps meet this need by providing disadvantaged children with the tools they need to engage in school, learn and succeed!
With school starting next month and back-to-school sales in full swing, now is the perfect time to host a back-to-school supply drive. This is great opportunity for companies, organizations, church groups, youth groups, friends and families to get involved in their community and help kids receive the tools they need to succeed.
Inland Empire United Way's School Tools program is in need of the following school supplies for the 2012-2013 program year:
- Colored Pencils
- Glue Sticks
