For the past four years, Tools 4 School has provided thousands of backpacks stuffed with school supplies to Issaquah School District students. Your donation of a backpack (boy’s or unisex backpacks are in high demand) goes a long way in this program.
Pack recipients who attend the event can also receive free dental screenings and free haircuts. A complementary lunch will be provided to students and families. A range of human services agencies will provide attendees with information and referrals.
Tools 4 School is coordinated by the Issaquah Schools Foundation in close partnership with other non-profits, service groups and churches, including the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank, the Issaquah Kiwanis Club, the Rotary Club of Issaquah, and Eastridge Church.
Issaquah Schools Foundation Executive Director Robin Callahan says, “The Foundation is all about lowering barriers to academic achievement for every student in the Issaquah School District. Many of our students simply need basic supplies to achieve school success. The Foundation is very happy to sponsor Tools 4 School, to ensure that all of our students know they are supported on their educational journey.”
Families who wish to participate must pre-register through the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank at www.issaquahfoodbank.org.
