School Supply Drive

Come back in late Summer 2017 for information about the 2017-18 United Way School Supply drive

Eta Pi / Men In Nursing / OSNA Back-to-school supply drive

September 22, 2016:  
Dear UW Oshkosh Nursing Community,

Thank you all for the school supplies you so generously donated to the 2016-17 United Way school supply drive sponsored by AAMN, OSNA and UWO CON's  Eta Pi Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing.  

Thanks to your generosity, we doubled the amount we collected compared to last year!

See the message below from United Way.  And watch for emails and signs at the start of the 2017-18 school year for another drive.

Have a great school year.


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.

Oshkosh Area United Way






The UW Oshkosh Eta Pi Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing is joining the College of Nursing's student organizations: AAMN (American Assembly for Men In Nursing, Great Lakes Chapter) and OSNA (Oshkosh Student Nurses Association) to collect school supplies for the Oshkosh Area United Way.   

Since it takes place after UWO classes begin, our school supply drive will be too late for the United Way annual Back to School Fair; however, United Way still welcomes our donations and the supplies will be used to fulfill teacher wish lists for needy students throughout the school year.
