Tools for Schools: Area groups hammer away at providing school supplies
Some of that worry will be alleviated when United Way of Defiance County kicks off its Tools for School collection later this month. The school supply collection is slated for 7-10 a.m. Aug. 14 at Biggby Coffee, 720 N. Clinton St., Defiance, according to Carrie Wetstein, executive director of United Way of Defiance County. During the three-hour period, area residents are asked to drop off either classroom supplies or monetary donations which will be used to buy school supply kits for grades pre-kindergarten-2, 3-5 and 6-12.

How awesome that you guys help out schools. There are so many out there that need help and so few people that step up to the plate to actually do something. Way to go!
This is the second year we are collecting school supplies. Last year was a great success! We hope to get more donations this year. In June of this year we were able to raise money and collect non-perishable food items for three local food pantries as well. :)
