School Drives

Back Pack Buddies 2015MPS is proud to have business and community partners who annually provide backpacks, school supplies, winter coats, mittens and other needed materials for our students.  If you or your organization would like to host a drive for our students, the following steps must be taken:

  • Contact the Department of Business, Community and Family Partnerships via the partnership inquiry form and let us know of your interest in hosting a drive or providing backpacks or supplies.​
  • MPS staff will connect you with the school you would like your donation to go to, or staff will match you with a school or classroom where your donation is needed.
  • MPS staff will work with you or your organization to arrange for the drop off of supplies.  
  • For school supplies, please review the 2016-17 school supply list to determine what our students need and what your drive will consist of.  It is recommended that arrangements are made to have the supplies delivered by the first day of school.  

Please contact department staff with questions on how to get involved.
