Collecting Supplies for Local Schools

The 10th annual UC San Diego School Supply Drive kicks off today.  All of the collected school supplies will be distributed to students at 16 local elementary, middle and high schools.  Collection boxes are located all over campus, including one in the Chancellor’s office.  This year, organizers also set up a campus Amazon Wish List for those who want to participate but have no time to shop.  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 drive runs through August 26.
