DU/United Way School Supply Drive

As we gear up for back-to-school at the University, many students in our communities do not have the basic resources that would allow them to be successful in school.  To help some of those students meet these basic needs, we have partnered with the United Way and are hosting a back-to-school supply drive.

We will be collecting the following items from July 21 until the end of the day on August 6:

  • Markers
  • Notecards
  • Ruler
  • Lined Paper
  • Folders
  • Glue Sticks
  • 24 pack crayons
  • Notebooks
  • Pencils

Supplies can be dropped off at any of the following locations:

  • School of Nursing (Kate DeLuca’s office – 550 Fisher Hall)
  • University Chapel Lobby in the Administration Building
  • Freshmen Development Office (309 Student Union)
