Tools for School
FLOC is constantly fundraising in order to cover the many needs presented by our children. One of our greatest responsibilities is in filling the basic academic needs presented by the thousands of children we serve throughout the year. We challenge area office supply agencies to get involved with our organization in donating school supplies so in demand for our kids. Over the past five years, we have presented completed supply lists for over 1000+ students. This is at no charge to them; we simply request a letter of reference for the student by an adult who can speak to something we can honor in that student’s character- we look very strongly at community service- and a letter of intent as written by the student. We do not give handouts, we want to empower each student with the knowledge that their good works are appreciated and valued.
The Mall at Fairfield Commons has most generously run three large fundraisers for this program specifically. They have raised over $30,000 for our Tools for School Program. Our supplies are available to those who are in need and who are invested in their own lives, and in the lives of their community.
