Hello Tools for School Friends,

Well, it’s official – we have finally completed the 2017 Tools for School project.  Thank you for all your hard work and support throughout this project.  Without you, thousands of children whose families are struggling would not have had the school supplies they needed to begin the school year ready to learn.

This is the official thank you letter that details what we accomplished this year and you have so much to be proud of.  On behalf of the thousands of children and the grateful school nurses, counselors, and administrators, as well as the staff at our partner non-profit agencies, we want you to know how appreciative we are for your kindness, generosity and caring for the students and the families in our community.  This program has a profound impact and it couldn’t happen without you!

While we have made every effort to capture the contact information of everyone who helped with and supported this program, we may have missed one or two people.  Therefore, please do share the official thank you not attached with all of your colleagues, friends and family who assisted with the Tools for School program.

Again, our sincere thanks to you for helping to make this year’s Tools for School program such a success!

Best regards,


Lisa Galonardo
