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. In late March, we held our biggest fundraising event yet, Trivia on Tap featuring Geeks Who Drink.

Stay tuned for more opportunities to give and volunteer in support of Tools for Schools. 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.
