Host a Back to School Fair Collection Drive 

Collection drives are an easy way to get involved in supporting your community. Our partner agencies have needs that you can help to fulfill when you host a drive. Your collection drive can be as big as city-wide, or as small as your office, depending on your available time and effort. You organize and hold the collection, and we will coordinate pick-up and distribute your items where they are needed most.

Here's how it works:

1. Schedule your Back to School Fair collection drive from now through August 13, 2018 and let us know!  
2. Promote your drive on social media and with flyers- HERE is our logo for you to use on your materials.  You may also want to use the Back to School Fair logo in your marketing materials. 
3. Schedule a pick-up or drop-off with the United Way by August 13, 2018 or deliver the items to the UPS truck at the Stuff the Truck event to be held the week of August 13th.  (Exact date to be determined.
4. Remember, August 1 - 5 the State of WI has established a temporary TAX HOLIDAY on the purchase of school-related supplies.  Please be sure to share this with your friends and co-workers.  For more information click here.
