Tools 4 School

Tools 4 School is for children in grades K-12 in the Issaquah School District. We provide high quality, brand new backpacks filled with school supplies to students who need extra financial assistance. Students choose their own backpacks and supply packs, so they are able to take items they like, will use and are needed. This program is a partnership between the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank and the Issaquah Schools Foundation, as we work together to ensure all students in the Issaquah School District have the tools and resources they need to succeed.

We distributed 667 backpacks and supply packs during Tools 4 School 2018! Thank you to all our wonderful donors, volunteers and participants for making the event a huge success!
