Tools for Schools helps revamp area schools

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Nashville-based non-profit organization Tools for Schools is working to improve Middle Tennessee schools one project at a time.

The organization was created six years ago by Nashville contractor John Carpenter.

"Just the whole area needs help," Carpenter said. "You know about Sumner County, they don't have enough money to open, so we want to help whenever and however we can."

The organization relies on donations and corporate partnerships to rehab schools in the area.

Schneider Electric partnered with the organization for the latest project, installing new table tops in Apollo Middle School's outdated auditorium.

"A lot of times we don't have the funds to do a complete overhaul at schools, and Tools for Schools makes it possible," Shawn Lawrence, assistant principal at Apollo Middle School, said.

Tools for Schools has completed hundreds of projects in 94 schools in Middle Tennessee.
