Donate to school supply drive at UW State Fair Day or in 240 Ag Hall

As many of you know, UW-Madison is sponsoring a day at the Wisconsin State Fair on August 10, 2011. In an effort to help Milwaukee-area children who lack the equipment for a successful school year, UW-Madison is sponsoring a school supply drive. Simply drop a new, unopened school supply from this list in the big red bin labeled “School Supply Collection” located in 240 Ag Hall.  All items collected will be transported to the State Fair on August 10 and will be distributed to Milwaukee area schools in time for the start of the upcoming school year.

Please note, all donations must be new, unused and in their original packaging.
