Tools for School: School Ready Supplies

“Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom.” -George Washington Carver

Education is the single most effective path out of poverty.  Sadly, one of the heftiest price paid by those living in poverty is the impact it has on their child’s educational performance.  So many children arrive the first day of school without the supplies they need to learn. Our Tools for School program is dedicated to providing those in need with the tools necessary to be successful in the classroom. We provide pre-assembled backpacks filled with essential school supplies. Our Tools for School program directly deliver supplies to underprivileged students in needy communities by empowering every child with a shot of success.

We also work alongside local business to provide free haircuts and hair salon visits to our deserving students. Some students will also benefit from our uniform program. Where we will purchase the necessary uniforms needed for school. But; in order to provide these services; we need your help with donations. By providing new merchandise distributed through our foundation; can lift a child spirit and give them hope knowing that someone cared enough to give them something new and valuable. The Tools for School Program is always looking for socks, shoes, undergarments, hair ribbons, bows… anything that would make a child feel special on their first day of school.
