School supply drive to benefit Madison College students

During Fall 2017 Convocation, the Madison College Community Service Team is holding a school supply drive to help approximately 300 incoming students who struggle to afford school supplies.

The intention is to provide basic supplies to help students enjoy a successful start to the academic year.

Based on a recent survey, the top items students need are:

  • Backpack
  • Flash drive
  • Three-ring binder
  • Folders
  • Notebooks
  • Pens
  • Pencils
  • Highlighters

Please bring donations in a bag or backpack and drop them off at any of these three locations:

  • Mitby Theater entrance on Tuesday, Aug. 22
  • Wellness table near the Atrium during Convocation
  • Student Life, Room B1260

Any supplies left over will be saved for future students in need. The TRiO office will handle distribution.
