Tools for Schools
February 08 2018, Southland VW
Every year, Southand Volkswagen teams up with The United Way to STUFF THE BUS with much-needed school supplies for children in need in our local area. The Tools For Schools Campaign takes place throughout the month of August and with your generous support we’ve donated an incredible amount of school supplies for the past 9 years!
This year’s Tools For Schools campaign is underway and with the help of local businesses and the people in our community we can help make sure that every child is ready for the new school year!
Simply Bring Your Donation to Our Showroom or Call to Donate $50 to Provide a Backpack Full of Supplies to a Child in Need!

Last Year's Tools for Schools
Thanks to the support of the wonderful Medicine Hat community our 2016 Tools for Schools drive was the most successful yet with over 800 backpacks brought to The United Way to distribute to children in need in our local community!
We’d like to extend a great big thank you to all those who took the time to visit one of our locations with donations of Tools for Schools for The United Way including all these great local businesses including: Cucumber Man Ltd., Posh Wash, Postcard Portables, Greg Anderson of MNP, Mark from House of Cars, Poo Patrol MH, Ryan Jackson, Sean Wheeler of Investor’s Group, South Country Co-op and so many more!
And another shout out goes to Mayor Ted Clugston, MH Police Chief Andy McGrogan, MLA Drew Barnes and MLA Bob Wanner for coming by to show their support for the cause with donations for children in our local community!
Support from the Community
We kicked off our donation drive for Tools for Schools in early August this year and our friends and longtime Tools for Schools supporters Southland Transportation provided buses to be stuffed with supplies and to easily indicate the three locations where donations could be provided.
And like every year our friends from MY96 and CHAT 94.5 were there to support The United Way with interviews and live broadcasts from our various locations, taking in donations and providing support for Tools for Schools! Thanks to Kim Johnston, Channy Jay, Shalinda Kirby, Joanne Lohr and Darren for coming by to broadcast live and show their support for this great cause!
