Tools for School program underway

Tools For School

With the approach of the new school year, families are beginning to purchase supplies. Binders, scissors, calculators, and pencils are just a few of the many items needed by students in an effort to promote their academic success. Unfortunately, the price of school supplies can be a dreaded thought when faced with expenses that strain an already tight budget. In an effort to ensure that all children start their year off with the supplies they need, the Kneehill Tools for School program is once again in operation throughout the Kneehill area.

The Tools for School program is possible due to the support of Kneehill Regional Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) and generous donations from community members, organizations and businesses. The program relies on these cash donations to provide the supplies necessary to support our area youth with their education.

Monetary donations can be made at Three Hills IDA, Trochu Balkwill’s Pharmacy, Carbon Grocery and the Village offices in Acme, Carbon and Linden. For a tax-deductible receipt, please make your cheque payable to Kneehill County-Tools for School.

Families that need the assistance of the Tools for School program can call the Kneehill Regional FCSS office at 403-443-3800 or via email at

We encourage you to contact Kneehill Regional FCSS at 403-443-3800 if you require any additional information. Your assistance matters and helps kids build a stronger future. Support the Tools for School program and make a donation today!
