How it works

  • 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 25% discount on school supplies purchased for donation to the 12th Annual School Supply Dive. They will also host collection boxes in the store for you to drop off your donations.
