Teachers often spend as much as $500 of their own money…some probably more…buying supplies for their students and materials for their classrooms. Over half of Seminole County’s student population qualifies for the free or reduced meals program. The need for help is district-wide.

Tools 4 Seminole Schools collects, stores and distributes school supplies and classroom materials to help alleviate this burden from teachers and low-income parents. The store has everything from pencils, notebooks, crayons and glue to tissues, socks and underwear… whatever is needed for students to be in school, ready to learn.

Teachers “shop” for free and select what they need – and what their students’ need.

How You Can Help

Participate in a School Supply Drive.  Download the Tools 4 Seminole Schools 2018 Supply Drive Tool Kit. When your drive is over, drop off the supplies and have your team’s photo taken for our social media sites.

Donate to Tools 4 Seminole Schools. Tools 4 Seminole Schools can leverage the funds to purchase supplies at deep discounts.
