JFS Young Leadership stuffing backpacks

Tools for Schools logoNow in its second year, the Young Leadership Board’s Tools for Schools initiative aims to provide as many backpacks stuffed with school supplies as possible to local children in need.

2018 to 2019

After welcoming six new members to the board, we hosted a happy hour at the Whippersnapper with 10% of proceeds earmarked for Tools for Schools.

Next up on our calendar is our biggest fundraising event yet, Trivia on Tap featuring Geeks Who Drink.

Whether you have donated funds, supplies, or time, your support is helping us make a major impact. We couldn’t do it without you!

2017 to 2018

Last year, we supported the initiative by hosting a happy hour, backpack stuffing party, and supply drive.

We assembled 193 backpacks and raised $2,705 for JFS clients! Check out all the numbers below.
