School Tools is a Kids in Need Foundation ProgramOur School Tools program provides school supplies to 48 elementary schools in Southeast Texas that have a large percentage of low-income students. Teachers at eligible schools can shop three times per semester or six total times per year. The teachers in turn distribute the supplies to the children whose families cannot provide them. This program helps keep low-income children motivated in the learning environment and excited about classroom activities. Not having adequate supplies can embarrass children and set them on a course of a dislike of school. Our goal is to ensure these children have the tools they need to succeed early in the educational process.
