Supplies for Scholars

Since launching in 2013, Supplies For Scholars has served over 6,300 Delaware County students ranging from Kindergarten (Pre-Kindergarten) through 12th grade. Last year alone we served over 2,000 children!

Since the first year, over $100,000 in donations has been collected to fill book bags with essential school supplies.

To better serve the community, the United Way of Delaware County provides supplies to Delaware County school children in every district, as well as those who are home schooled, and students with sensory and special needs.

"Last year one of our volunteers was out in town and spotted one of the students that he helped shop for his school supplies this past summer at a mobile Supplies for Scholars event. The mother recognized our volunteer. She went up to him and said how much she appreciated the school supplies that helped out her son and that it was really nice not to worry about the burden of finding a way to buy what was needed to start his school year. She said it made a big difference and was such a blessing."
