About the Event:
The Coeur d'Alene Tribe and Coeur d'Alene Casino are proud to sponsor the third annual "Tools 2 Schools Supply Drive". KREM 2 and Wal-Mart joined in the effort to host a campaign that would help gather everything from pens and pencils to calculators and backpacks. Visit any area Wal-Mart and pick-up a few extra school supplies. On your way out of the store place them in the Tools 2 Schools bins. Those supplies will go to area children.


Event Dates: Friday, August 13th — Sunday, August 22nd

Goal & Need:
We love to set goals for our projects at KREM 2. Goals allow us to know if we've achieved success and made a difference. However, measuring the exact need for school supplies is difficult. We know there are thousands of families struggling this year. While we won't likely be able to help everyone we know that whatever we gather will be put to good use. We are helping two different agencies (Martin Luther King Family Outreach Center, and the Salvation Army Kroc Center) that have put distribution plans in place to get the supplies to the families in need. In talking with these agencies we expect several thousand kids to receive donated items. That said, we'll make sure every single item you give the Tools 2 Schools Supply Drive gets passed along to an agency. On this website we have posted the agency weblinks and the distribution plans.

Our Goal: Gather as many school supplies as possible!
