Tools for School program serves 567 students

Every year since 2002 The Salvation Army Port Clinton Service Unit has offered a school supply assistance program, Tools for School, in August. This year the program served 567 local students with school supplies and a new backpack. 

Since this program was completely funded by donations, the overwhelming success was due to our local residents, businesses and organizations that donated funds such as: The Ottawa County Community Foundation Grant, Stensen Grant, McDonald’s Port Clinton, Huntington Bank and the community donations.
