Opportunity Details

Host a School Supplies Drive

Each fall, United Way of 1000 Lakes hosts an annual School Supply Drive to collect school supplies for local students. When you host a drive or donate supplies, you help students across our community access the tools needed to stay on track to graduation. Help set students up for success by hosting a donation dropboxand collect donations at your workplace, church, civic group, or even your home. When you've collected your items, deliver them to United Way. Donated items will be packed into backpacks by volunteers and distributed to students and teachers.

If you'd like to collect donations, let us know by expressing interest below! We'll set you up with a toolkit, a donation box if you need one, and help community members find your dropbox.
