From July 22nd – September 10th, we are collecting donations of school supplies for MPS students. We are working again with Best Ed to order supplies which will be distributed directly to MPS schools in fall. Packages are illustrated below and are available as choices on the donation page.

Best Ed is a locally-owned, women- and minority-run business that works as a one-stop shop for educational materials, workplace supplies, furniture and more. For our drive, they work with Beyond Vision to package the materials and deliver them to the schools.

In 2020, your donations outfitted students at 8 Milwaukee Public Schools on all sides of the city. In 2021, we have doubled our target and plan to support 16 schools. Help us meet this bold goal! Together we can help MPS families get off to a great start this school year.

If you prefer to donate by check, make out to Milwaukee Public Schools Foundation and please note “No Empty Backpacks” in the memo. Mail to 234 W. Galena Street; Milwaukee, WI 53212
