  •  Prior to arriving, please write the first and last name AND grade level of the student in bold print on a full-size sheet of paper. It is helpful to have this posted on the passenger’s visor to be easily read by the distribution team. 

  • When driving through, the vehicle will pull up to the distribution point and stop. No one will be allowed to get out of the vehicle. Please be prepared to open your trunk/back door for volunteers to place school supply packs into your car. 

  • Only school supply packs that have been previously purchased will be distributed. Please note that extra packs will NOT be for sale at these drive through events.

  • If you are unable to pick up your pre-purchased school supply pack during either of these times, your pack will be labeled and available for pickup next week.


For Pre-K- through 6th-grade students who are learning in person, school supplies will be in the student’s classroom on their first day of school. Questions? Email schoolsupplies@aledopto.org
