The Grande Prairie Public School Division expresses heartfelt thanks to United Way Alberta Northwest and supporters of their annual Tools 4 School Campaign.

Through their generosity, 223 GPPSD students who could use a hand-up will have essential school supplies ready for the first day of school.

These backpacks filled with school supplies symbolize much more than just tools. They represent a community commitment to making our schools welcoming and caring environments, essential for student growth.

The campaign's success reflects a strong collaborative effort within the community to help students across our region be prepared and equipped for the upcoming academic year. 

Backpacks full of supplies will be distributed across GPPSD schools to reach students who need a hand-up. Families whose children need support should contact their school Principal.

How can you help?

There are still children and youth who could use a hand-up. If you are able, please consider making a donation to the campaign.
