Wilder school supply drive

Tools for School Success Backpack Drive

Providing school supplies to students served by Wilder

Through the Tools for School Success supply drive, volunteers and donors help make sure that every student served by Wilder has school supplies. 

A core priority of Wilder is preparing and enabling low-income children and their families to succeed in school, work and life. Providing backpacks and school supplies to the children who are served and connected to Wilder means these kids are better equipped to start the school year on track and focus on learning.

  • Thank you to United Way for providing backpacks for Wilder's Tools for School Success supply drive! 
  • Wilder will accept donations of school supplies to fill backpacks for children served by Wilder. Contact us for information about hosting a drive!
