Distribution for Tools4School is changing in 2022! Please read the new information below!

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!

There will be no drive-through distribution event this year. You can pick up a backpack and supplies in the office of the school your student attends starting August 15, 2022. Be sure to register at the link below so that enough backpacks and supplies are delivered to your school.
