Learn about UC San Diego's school supply drive.

Last year UC San Diego departments brought much needed supplies to 16 classrooms. Help us make this year even more successful.

11th Annual UCSD School Supply Drive

August 1 - September 15, 2017

  • Spiral notebooks, binders, binder paper, drawing pads
  • Crayons, colored pencils, markers, highlighters, paints, art supplies
  • Kid's books and software (including large print books)
  • Backpacks and lunchpails
  • Pens, pencils, erasers, rulers
  • Coloring books, activity books, flashcards, stickers
  • New and gently used kid's clothing and shoes

How it works

  • The UCSD community donates supplies to collection boxes hosted by departments.
  • We collect the school supplies and distribute them to disadvantaged schools across San Diego County.

UC San Diego Bookstore

The Bookstore has generously offered a 20% discount on school supplies purchased for donation to the 11th Annual School Supply Dive. They will also host collection boxes in the store for you to drop off your donations.
