Imagine showing up to work and not having the tools to do your job, much less you need to succeed, now imagine that happening everyday. We have too many children going back to school without the most basic school supplies such as pens, papers, pencils, glue, crayons, notebooks, backpacks, snacks and even lunch money. The good thing is you can help make these children’s quest to learn a little nicer. Help supply them with the tools they need.



Tools For Schools was created after learning that there are hundreds of homeless, displaced, disenfranchised and just kids needing some help in our area schools. So a few folks put their money  where their mouths were and started buying school supplies and even just donating money so supplies could be bought. That was eight years ago, now we want to make an even bigger impact, this year with your help we can and will.


Any donation of $25 or more of school supplies or money will receive a limited edition print from local artist Mark Ray. (These sell for $35). The person/company with the largest donation over $75 will receive a painting from Mark (a $225 to $400 value). Prints can be picked up at drop off points, and Painting will be delivered 2nd week of September.


Donations accepted from July 1st through August 30th. List of supplies needed is available here.
