2013 Tools for Schools Campaign

Help Get the School Year Started on the Right Foot.

Countless area children will go to school this fall without basic school supplies, unless we help. 
We are pleased to sponsor our 8th annual TOOLS FOR SCHOOLS campaign - a community wide - collection of supplies and donations for local youth in need.

Together, we can make sure that kids concentrate on the most important thing - learning.

We are now accepting donations of new school supplies or cash contributions at all United locations.  Donation period will run through Friday August 16.

Suggested items include:

  • Backpacks for all ages
  • Highlighters, colored pencils and markers
  • Calculators
  • Binders, spiral notebooks and folders
  • Protractors, rulers and compasses
  • Glue and scissors
  • Combination locks
  • Gift cards (fast food, shoe and clothing stores)

Looking for other ways to help?

  • Spread the word about the Tools for Schools collection drive amongst your friends and family.  Here are a few sample communications to help!
  • Hold a mini collection drive and drop off your supplies at your nearest United location.
  • Donate right now from your computer or mobile device, to make it even easier, you can use our Amazon Wishlist to purchase supplies online that can then be delivered directly to our collection site. (Please note: Ground shipping works for this drive, no need to expedite shipping)

You make a big difference when you donate.  Thank you!
