Finishing up Tools for School 2020

UNITED WAY TOOLS FOR SCHOOL CAMPAIGN

In August of each year Southland Volkswagen mounts a huge drive to collect schools supplies for children in the community whose families don’t have the means to provide for them. All collections are provided to the United Way to distribute to the community together with a matching donations direct from Southland VW.

We finished up the 2020 Tools for School today (Friday, August 28, 2020)! It was a HUGE SUCCESS! We had plenty of supplies and backpacks that were collected and sent to the United Way of Southeastern Alberta with the help of CHAT 94.5 FMKim Johnston from CHAT helped with radio spots and social media to ensure awareness about the Tools for Schools Program.

Today we loaded up 3 trucks FULL of supplies! We even had backpacks in the back and front seats of these trucks. Each backpack was also filled with supplies any child would need to succeed in school. We can’t wait until next year for the 2021 Tools for School!
