Teachers and Staff

Excellence, equity, advocacy and educational funding are our mantra and this also holds true at our Tools4Schools Warehouse. The goal of this program is to reduce the opportunity gap by ensuring that all students have the school supplies they need for success in the classroom. Students with verified financial need receive school supplies and backpacks from their school guidance counselors. We want to ensure that ALL students arrive at the bus stop on the first day of school with the supplies they need to be ready to learn!

Through this warehouse, we also work to mitigate the out-of-pocket expenses teachers spend on classroom and student resources. Teachers shop for free educational materials and classroom rewards and incentives at our Tools4Schools Warehouse through both onsite and online shopping. 

Thanks to the generous support of grants and financial donations along with the help of school supply drives, extremely dedicated volunteers, and partner organizations, we satisfied 775 teacher orders, provided 1,330 students with school supply kits, and 880 students with backpacks!

And that’s not all.  When students’ homes were devastated by April 2018’s tornado, we stepped in to replace school supplies lost in the storm for both Lynchburg and Amherst County students.

We welcome both financial and material donations, including school supplies, office supplies, and art supplies. Please contact our director at (434) 515-5081 or gillettejk@lcsedu.net if you can help!
