School Supplies Drop-off Locations

What to donate and where:

student_success_petitFinancial donations are preferred. With these funds we are able to purchase new school supplies in bulk at a discounted rate, allowing your donor dollar to go further. For those wishing to donate school supplies, please see the list of most-needed items below.

We are extremely grateful for any donations we receive for this incredible program. Due to the high volume of items we receive in the lead up to SISS, as well as the quantities of each supply that we distribute per grade level, there are some items that we are more in need of than others.

Most-needed items for September 2020:

  • New backpacks (child or youth-sized, with no corporate logos, offensive designs, or text)
  • Blunt scissors (we cannot accept sharp scissors - we only give out scissors that are appropriate for children)
  • Geometry sets
  • Pencil crayons
  • Glue sticks
  • Calculators

You can also see a complete list of items we use for Sharing in Student Success here.
