The goal of the Tools 4 Schools program is to reduce the cost
of classroom school supplies to educators in St. Johns County, Florida.


On average, teachers spend $800 of their own money on school supplies for their students and classroom. The goal of Tools 4 Schools is to lower this cost to our educators.

Tools 4 Schools is an annual county wide school supply drive held in the summer. The program directly benefits the teachers and students in the St. Johns County School District. Individuals, organizations, and businesses are encouraged to become a part of this event by becoming drop-off points, donating supplies and/or volunteering time to help sort and distribute to teachers.

In April, 2012, the Bailey Group Resource Depot opened.  This is a permanent location, donated by The Bailey Group, which stores the collected supplies during the Tools 4 Schools drive and throughout the year. Teachers digitally submit supply requests throughout the school year. Filling orders serves as a service learning project for students.
