United Way of San Diego County’s Back to School Drive

Help Students Prepare for School

The start of the school year poses many difficulties for vulnerable children and families, especially this year when inflation is soaring and families are struggling to make ends meet.

The lack of basic, essential tools for learning, such as pens, backpacks, and books, jeopardizes a child’s ability to succeed. Without access to these resources, many students will fall even further behind.

Our back to school drive will run until August 15th, 2022.
