Tools for School


The Tools for School Expo is a back-to-school event designed to provide students from qualifying low-income families to enter school in the fall on a level playing field with essential school supplies.

The 15th annual Tools For School Expo was August 7at the TrueNorth Service Center in Fremont. The program is serving more than 1,000 Newaygo County students this fall.

The program is for kindergarten through 12th grade students living in Newaygo County or attending a Newaygo County school for the 2018-2019 school year.

The students gain new backpacks filled with essential school supplies through Tools for School. Many also receive dental and eye exams, eye screenings and haircuts as well as access to programs and services from 25 community organizations and services.
