Donate Now


"My students and I took a few minutes to reflect today on the blessings we have received from the donations of school supplies.  Many of the families of my students cannot afford all the things their child/children need to start the school year.  Because of your donations I was able to provide some of those things.  Every day in the classroom we share and use something (usually many things) that was donated.  Without those donations I'm not sure how I could have a successful classroom!" ~ Ms. H, 6th grade teacher 

Imagine learning how to write without a pencil or read without a book. The mission of Teaching Tools for Hillsborough Schools is to ensure that children in Hillsborough County have the basic tools for learning by bringing the community's surplus supplies and merchandise into the hands of teachers and school children, at no cost to them. 

Did you know? 

  • 56% of Hillsborough County Public Schools are classified as Title-I. This means that more than 75% of the students at these schools are considered economically disadvantaged, and may not be able to afford the most basic school supplies. 

  • Since 2002, we've distributed more than $13 million in free school supplies. 

Teachers face the challenge of not having all the tools necessary in the classroom.  Teaching Tools currently serves 120 Title 1 schools and educational sites throughout the district, reaching more than 2,300 teachers and 60,000 at-risk students every year.

 

"Sharing our supplies with Teaching Tools is an easy, hands on way to give back to the community. Our Rotary Club has conducted collection drives among our members, local businesses and even store sales. Knowing that we are helping children learn and giving them something they can call their own is very rewarding. The thank you notes and drawings are wonderful."  ~ Steven Brown, Rotary Club of Brandon South

Thank you to all Teaching Tools for Hillsborough Schools donors.
