Tools4School is a partnership between the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank and the Issaquah Schools Foundation to provide new backpacks filled with school supplies for children in grades K-12 in the Issaquah School District who need financial assistance. Students can choose their own backpacks, and a basic supply pack will be provided based on the child's grade.

We thank all of our donors and community partners as we work together to ensure all students in the Issaquah School District have the tools and resources they need to succeed!
