About our School Supply Drive

United Way of Lake County, in partnership with Waukegan Public Schools and People's Choice Family Fun Center, seeks to provide students from low-income families in Lake County with new school supplies; preparing them for their academic studies, building their self-esteem, and setting them up for success.

The beginning of a school year is always an incredible financial hurdle for many families. In light of the additional economic setback from COVID-19, the need to support our families and ensure our students have the tools they need is even greater. With your contribution, students with the greatest need will be identified and receive your support.

We need your help to collect the supplies that these children require to excel in school.

By participating, you're doing more than collecting supplies. You are ensuring that our most at-risk kids have everything they need to start the school year off eager and ready to learn.

Ways to Get Involved

Here are some meaningful ways to support our students and ensure they are prepared to continue their learning.

1. MAKE AN ONLINE DONATION

Make an online gift below. We'll purchase the supplies and distribute them to local students in need. Each $20 donation will provide one student with a backpack full of supplies.
