Supplies for Success! - School Supply Drive for Bozeman Middle Schools
Supplies for Success is a school supplies drive for Bozeman middle schools sponsored by a student organization. The drive will be held from Tuesday November 27th until Friday December 7th. Donation bins will be set across campus, including in the SUB, the library, Roberts, Wilson, Barnyard, and Montana Hall. Each winter holiday season, Supplies for Success sets up donation bins across the Montana State University campus to gather donations of school supplies. All school supplies are donated directly to the middle schools in the area: including Chief Joseph and Sacajawea middle school.
Though school supplies are abundant during the beginning of a school year, they start to run low as the academic year continues. Furthermore, it is unfair to put the burden on teachers who often spend their own money on school supplies to ensure their students succeed. According to Time magazine, the average educator spends $500 of their own money per year on education materials for their students.
