Donate school supplies now

School Supply Drive with WISNMPS students need you! Children are getting ready to learn, and they need pencils, notebooks, and other supplies so they have the equipment they need to succeed. You can help students have a great year by donating this month!

We are grateful to WISN 12 and the Salvation Army for hosting the Stuff the Bus campaign on August 14 to collect supplies for our students. Stuff the Bus received just over $45,000, enough to supply about 3,000 local children, plus thousands of donated items.

Would you like to donate or organize a drive at work or your church? School supplies can be dropped off until September 3 at MPS Central Services. Stop in during regular hours and our smiling staff will accept your donation.
