13,000 reasons to donate school supplies!

More than 13,000 students in Harford County Public Schools qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. Many students don’t have some of the most basic supplies they need to be prepared and ready to learn.

Your donations can change a child’s education path toward success.

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 school supplies they need for academic success.

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



You can strengthen public education in Harford County by making a contribution today.  Here are some examples of how your generous gift can make a difference:

  $10 can provide a child with a high-quality book to encourage family reading together time.

  $25 can provide a student with a backpack filled with essential school supplies.

$75 can provide a child with foundation resources for an entire school year.

  $125 can build a classroom library with high-interest leveled books to boost confident readers.

  $250 can help a teacher engage students in enriched and innovative learning.

$1,000 can invest in a student’s future with a scholarship.






When you host a school supply drive at your business or organization, you are giving our most vulnerable students the educational tools they need to succeed in school.  School supply drives also help restock our Tools for Schools Resource Center where teachers shop free for school supplies for their students and their classrooms.







Shopping online is an easy way to help our students access the essential tools for learning.  You shop from the comfort of your home and the school supplies will be shipped directly to Harford County Education Foundation.
