Saint Louis University

The annual Saint Louis University School Supply Drive, benefiting KidSmart and SLU-sponsored charter schools, will run from Monday, July 15, until Friday, Aug. 9.

Last year, the SLU community contributed more than 20,000 items to local schools — the most among any college or university in the St. Louis metro area.

Departments or buildings that would like to support the drive are encouraged to organize a team. The deadline to register a team is Friday, July 12. Each team will receive one collection bin. General collection bins will also be placed across campus.

To register a team or for questions regarding the supply drive, contact Justin Vilbig at or 314-977-4105. Donations to purchase school supplies will also be accepted. Make checks payable to Saint Louis University.
