About

The average back to school supply list can cost over $100 which isn't feasible for many families in metro Denver. That's why Mile High United Way is ensuring young people have the supplies they need to start the school year off strong. Join us! You can run a school supply drive with your friends/coworkers or volunteer your time to help make sure the day runs smoothly.

All school supplies are generously donated by companies and donors in our community, for more information on how to Run a Drive with your team or donate money towards the purchase of supplies, please contact Jillian Allison at jillian.allison@unitedwaydenver.org or visit https://unitedwaydenver.org/back-to-school-bash-supply-drive/
