Look for these boxes on campus to contribute to UW State Fair school supply drive

We hope to see a huge crowd from CALS at the UW-Madison Day at the State Fair, but if you can’t get there, you can still help UW–Madison make a difference by donating school supplies for Milwaukee Public Schools.  You can find donation boxes at many campus locations—though we’d love to see an overflowing box in Ag Hall:

  • Agricultural Hall, 1450 Linden Drive
  • Welcome Center, 21 N. Park St.
  • Union South – Campus and Community Information Welcome Desk, 1308 W. Dayton St.
  • Camp Randall Welcome Center, inside Gate 1 of the stadium in Kellner Hall.
  • Wisconsin Alumni Association, 650 North Lake Street
  • Steenbock Memorial Library, 550 Babcock Drive
  • Ebling Library, Health Sciences Learning Center, 750 Highland Ave.

Here’s what’s needed (donations must be new, unused and in their original packaging).

  • Backpacks
  • Wide-ruled spiral notebooks
  • Pocket folders in primary colors
  • Fiskars blunt tip kid friendly scissors
  • Box of 12 or 24 colored pencils
  • Package of loose leaf paper (wide-ruled)
  • Package of 12 or 24 pencils
  • Box of Crayola Colored Markers (“classic colors”)
  • Box or package of 12 or 24 glue sticks
  • Package of 4 Expo dry erase markers
  • Box of highlighters
  • Rulers
  • Box of large pink erasers
  • Boxes of Ziploc bags (quart and gallon size)
  • Bottles of Purell Instant Hand Sanitizer (8 oz. size)

During last year’s UW–Madison Day at the Wisconsin State Fair, 55 fifty-gallon-sized bags of school supplies were collected to benefit Milwaukee Public Schools.
