‘Tools 4 School’ giveaway was great success
On August 6, 2011, the gift of educational assistance was given to the children of our Tri-State area. The 7th Annual Tools 4 School back pack and school supply giveaway was once again a tremendous success.
Although the project began in 2005 as a joint vision of St Paul Lutheran Church in Ironton and All Saints Lutheran Church in Worthington, Ohio, our development and growth would not be possible without the dedication and support of so many in our community.
We also have a congregation that is devoted to and involved in this mission.

Three years ago we combined with First United Methodist Church’s Summerfest to create a neighborhood festival.
Our hopes for 2012 is to include more of the downtown churches, civic organizations, businesses, and area individuals to make this an even bigger and better community event.
On behalf of myself, Nancy Corm and the entire Tools 4 School Committee, we are grateful for your continued contributions and assistance with our project.
