School Supply Drive

2017-18 United Way School Supply drive

Eta Pi / AAMN / OSNA Back-to-school supply drive

UW Oshkosh Nursing Community:

Eta Pi, AAMN (American Association of Men In Nursing), and OSNA (Oshkosh Student Nurses Association) are joining forces again to collect school supplies for the Oshkosh Area United Way's school supply drive.  Hit those school supply sales now and buy a few extra things for disadvantaged kids.  These donations go a long way to help students have a better school year.

See the message below that United Way sent after our Summer 2016 School Supply Drive.  
Let's increase our donations for area school kids this year!

Have a great rest of the summer and we'll see you back at UWO in September


Thank you for organizing the Stuff the Truck collection at UW Oshkosh College of Nursing.  Your donation of 676 items is a true investment in the students of Oshkosh.  Because of you and others like you, students have the supplies they need to be successful in school.  And research shows, success in school sets the foundation for a good quality of life!

Thank you again.  It is always a pleasure to work with you.
