Collecting School Supplies for Children


Chancellor Khosla adds pencils and pens to the school supply collection box in the Chancellor's office.

UC San Diego is once again hosting a school supply drive for students at 14 local elementary, middle and high schools.  The 9th annual drive runs from August 3 to September 30.  There are three dozen collection boxes all over campus, including one in the Chancellor’s office.  Staff, faculty and students are encouraged to donate new school supplies, backpacks, lunch boxes, gently used binders and children’s books.  University materials will not be accepted.  The UC San Diego Bookstore is offering a 20 percent discount on school supplies purchased in the store and then donated.  Click here for a list of collections boxes.
