The children of Alachua County need your help. Each day in Alachua County more than half of the students can't afford to buy lunch, not to mention much needed school supplies. Here are some suggestions how, with little effort, your business can make a dramatic and positive difference in the lives of our kids.

Your business can help by becoming a TOOLS FOR SCHOOLS Business Partner (Business Partners) and providing any of the following support.

* Donate out-of-date materials (stationery, pens, pencils, notebooks), manufacturing by-products or castoffs and packaging materials to TOOLS FOR SCHOOLS. Remember, what may seem like trash to you, could be the treasure a teacher needs to inspire a student (Suggested Donations).

* If your business does not have these items, you can hold a materials drive and collect new supplies (Supply Drives). We always need pencils, crayons, paper and glue. In addition, we greatly appreciate cash donations. In order to meet the needs of our students it is sometimes necessary to purchase supplies.

* We are looking for Pickup Partners to help gather materials from businesses. If you have drivers with extra room and a little time, become a TOOLS FOR SCHOOLS Pickup Partner and help us get supplies to our central warehouse.

Without a doubt, your business is a conduit from us to other businesses. Spread the word and teach others to understand our needs and help us turn the trash from our business community into treasures for our children.

Call 352-374-5213 for details on where and when to make deliveries.
