MSU Moorhead has joined with other Fargo-Moorhead organizations to help support the 16th Annual Community School Supply Drive & Distribution, sponsored by the United Way of Cass-Clay (UWCC).

The MSUM school supply drive will run from Monday, June 23 through Wednesday, July 31 at 4:00 p.m., with distribution to children beginning on Saturday, August 9th.

Over 500 volunteers from businesses, organizations, and individuals donated a tremendous amount of supplies.

Please help solve this critical need in our community by dropping off school supplies on or before Wednesday, July 31st, in the red barrels located outside the Office of Human Resources – OWENS 214.
