What is a School Supply Drive?
YOU and your co-workers (customers, members, friends/family, students) become a circle of support for a student in crisis by providing a collection box and fun promotions to collect school supplies and financial donations. Filled backpacks will be distributed to each of Family Pathways 9 food shelves across East Central MN and Western WI, plus the domestic abuse emergency shelter at Black Dog Hill. These are fun and positive team building experiences—hosted by businesses, schools, organizations, religious groups and individuals—that can help your group feel more connected to the community and one another. Family Pathways works alongside School Supply Drive Hosts providing support materials and overall moral support.
Drop off collected supplies at any Families Pathways Thrift Store or at one of our Stuff the Bus Events!
We are here to support your School Supply Drive!
