Assists qualified families that live in Hamilton County with back packs, school supplies and other important school needs according to your children’s supply list(s). We will also assist with shoes, socks and underwear. Hamilton County Kids Coats will be on hand to supply used spring/fall coats and Book in Hand will provide a new book for every child.
Registration opens March 15 of each year. Starting July 30, school supplies will be available during regular food pantry hours, as long as supplies last.
What makes “Tools for School’ different than other programs? We allow the children to pick their own back pack, and their own supplies according to their supply list. They get to choose the color, size, and type of things they like to work with! We will provide shoes if you come to the event.
Registration is now closed for the 2016 event.
