Tools for School

News 18 is again proud to support the Salvation Army in Lafayette for the Annual Tools For School program. Thanks to our sponsors and the generosity of the community, we helped raise thousands of items for thousands of students throughout the years.

The collection will begin on July 13 and end on July 24.

Using the list below, you can make donations of those items at drop boxes at sponsor's locations.

Distribution of supplies will be at The Salvation Army on Saturday, August 1, 2020, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at 1110 Union Street, Lafayette, Indiana 47904.
