Tools for School 2018!


It may still be summer, but the first day of school is just around the corner and school supplies are needed!



Many families in the Gallatin Valley are living paycheck-to-paycheck and juggling monthly bills, all of which makes buying school supplies stressful, even burdensome. Please help out children across the many elementary, middle, and high schools in the Gallatin Valley by dropping of new schools supplies at one of the many donation locations. 

School supply donations such as backpacks, lined paper, pencils, pens, scissors, crayons, colored pencils, and glue sticks are needed. Donations are accepted at the below mentioned churches and at the Salvation Army from July 6th until August 12th. All donations are greatly appreciated!
