Since 2012, the City of Edmonton has supported the United Way of the Alberta Capital Region as its corporate charity of choice. As part of the employee experience at the City, supporting United Way's programs helps build stronger neighbourhoods and communities in Edmonton, which helps to build a stronger city overall.

Tools for School Campaign

We need your help! We need to gather donations of new or unused school supplies, so every student from Kindergarten to Grade 12, can have an equal start to the school year. This year the need has increased and 16,000 backpacks have been requested.

The Tools for School campaign runs until September 6, 2019. Donation boxes are located at several City facilities where you can donate your new or unused school supplies.

Donations are accepted at the following facilities:

The requested donations for Tools for School include NEW or UNUSED:

  • Backpacks
  • Coil notebooks
  • Erasers
  • Highlighters
  • Pencils
  • Pens
  • Pencil cases
  • Pencil crayons
  • Washable markers

If you know a parent who may need access to the Tools for School program, please advise the parent to go through their child's school, call 211 or the main United Way line (780-990-1000).
