Tools for schools

The 15th annual Tools for Schools program helped even more students this year. So far, 730 students in need have been equipped with a backpack and school supplies this month, compared with 540 last September. Donation dropoff boxes in the community will be collected for the final time this month on Monday. But school supplies continue to be needed throughout the year and can be dropped off at Central Alberta Women’s Outreach at 4808 51st Ave. in Red Deer.
