130,000+ reasons to donate school supplies
That number represents the 50% of students in Broward County who qualify for free or reduced-fee lunch. Title 1 schools in the district have a large number of these students in attendance. This ever-growing number of economically challenged students is why our Tools for Schools Broward store in Pompano exists. Teachers in our County’s Title 1 schools depend upon free school supplies to help students take full advantage of their education.
The Tools for Schools Broward store is stocked through donations from individuals and local businesses, purchases with donated funds and partnerships with organizations such as the Kids in Need Foundation, Target, Staples and Walgreens.
Any individual or business is welcome to donate items, including supplies, furniture and more. Our teachers and their students will put it all to good use.
Here is our wish list for the most needed supplies:
- Personal care items
- New and used books
- Incentive items
- Arts and crafts tools
To donate supplies or coordinate a pick-up, please call Hector Javier at 754-321-9021.
