Supplies for Success: Help kids and families start school prepared


Mile High United Way is working to help kids in our community start the school year off right!

The average back to school supply list can cost over $100 which isn’t feasible for many families in Metro Denver. Through Supplies for Success, Mile High United Way and our partner agencies make sure that the kids and families we serve are able to pick out everything they need for school. Be a part of this year’s Supplies for Success by holding a school supply drive.


Students need everything from backpacks to binders. Consider stuffing a brand new backpack with some of these goodies:


Backpack | Lunch Bag/Box | Box of Facial Tissue | Container of Disinfectant Wipes | Bottle of Hand Sanitizer |Bottle of Hand Soap | Box of Gallon Size Bags | Box of Quart Size Bags | Box of Crayons | #2 Pencils | Pencil Sharpener with Shavings Catcher | Pink Pearl Eraser | Package of Pencil Top Erasers | Box of Thick Markers, non-permanent | Highlighters | Box of Colored Pencils | Pens (Blue and Red) | Pair of Scissors | Plastic Pencil/School Box | Pencil Bag | Plastic Folder with Pockets | Plastic Folder with Pockets and Clasps | Wide Ruled Notebooks | Composition Notebooks | Wide Ruled Notebook Paper | Glue Stick | Bottle of Glue | Ruler | 1” Binders | Package of Dividers | Scientific Calculator

Please drop off items by August 8, 2018 at Mile High United Way Morgridge Center for Community Change at 711 Park Avenue West, Denver, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

All donated supplies will be distributed to the students and families by the Mile High United Way Emerging Leaders Council on August 11.
