Teacher Shopping Days Resource Center link

Help Harford County Education Foundation ensure all students have school supplies on their first day of school!

Find the list of Stuff the Bus collection sites here.

In Harford County over 10,000 students in our public schools receive free and reduced meals which is a federal definition of poverty.

Every year teachers give from their own pockets to purchase school supplies for students in need.

For the past eleven years, Harford County Education Foundation  has been giving school supplies to students in need. This year the Education Foundation donated $28,000 in school supplies.

Together, we can do more!

Tools for Schools is a school supply resource center where teachers can shop for free for the learning materials for students in need. With everyone contributing to a central resource center, we can ensure that every child in need is served. And teachers know best which students are without the schools supplies they need for educational success.

Click here to learn more about the Tools for Schools resource center and how your company can donate school supplies or hold a school supply drive. We want to ensure that every child starts his or her first day of school with the school supplies essential for quality learning so they can be successful in learning and in life!
