Tools 4 School Program

Help Hundreds of Hunterdon Kids Be Better Prepared for School through United Way’s Tools 4 School Program

Summer may have just started but United Way of Hunterdon County (UWHC) is already planning for back-to school with its annual Tools 4 School supply drive. The program provides 1,300 school supply kits and/or backpacks to ensure all Hunterdon County students go back to school feeling confident and prepared.

United Way is asking individuals, companies, and organizations to participate in the drive by either donating school supplies or providing a monetary donation to support the program. Any amount of supplies or dollars donated will improve the life of a Hunterdon County student in need. Donations will be turned into basic school supply kits suitable for each student’s grade level.

Supplies ranging from erasers and crayons to backpacks and scientific calculators are all in high demand.

The United Way will be hosting a special Stuff-the-Bus on Monday, Aug. 7, at the Community Volunteer Center, 20 Fulper Road in Flemington from 12-6 PM. Drop off donations, have your picture taken and meet other volunteers and donors. Attendees can also sign up to help sort and distribute back packs. Stuff the Bus drop-off days also will be happening at shopping centers throughout August.

Consider partnering with United Way of Hunterdon County for this program. Community participation is what allows Tools 4 School to exist.
