Inland Empire United Way conducts school supply drives to help local students succeed!

School Supply Drive FB Cover Image_v2

Imagine trying to complete a school assignment, but not having basic supplies like a pen, pencil or paper. Unfortunately, this scenario is all too real, and without your help, thousands of kids here in our community may be going back to school without the supplies they need to learn and succeed. Inland Empire United Way’s School Tools program provides NEW supplies throughout the school year to local students and classrooms in need. Last year, we distributed more than $2 million worth of supplies to 53 Inland Empire schools.

We believe that every child deserves to go back-to-school with the supplies they need to excel, and donations from amazing partners in our local community are instrumental in making that possible. Together, we can provide enough School Tools to help create a brighter future for our community’s children, but we need additional churches, businesses, groups and individuals to donate supplies or run a supply drive during the month of August or September. Here are a few ways you can help:

School Tools Supply Drive Hosts – Conduct a supply drive and collect any or all of the “Basic 10” items for children in our local schools. This is the perfect opportunity for employee groups, church congregations, service clubs, sports teams or other community groups. It’s easy, fun, and makes a real difference for local kids.

School Tools Supply Station Locations – We are looking for business locations throughout IEUW’s service area to serve as supply drop-off locations. We will provide the collection bin, signage, pick up the donations, and promote your Supply Station.

School Supply Donations – Next time you’re out shopping, please pick up any of the Basic 10 supplies to donate to local students in need. Drop off supplies at any of our School Tools Supply Stations, which will be located throughout our community. Locations will be posted on our website.

If you are able to help, please visit our website at or contact Dixie Torres at or 909-980-2857 ext. 216 to get started!
