School Supply Drive

2018-19 United Way School Supply drive

Eta Pi / AAMN / OSNA Back-to-school supply drive

UW Oshkosh Nursing Community:

Eta Pi, AAMN (American Association of Men In Nursing), and OSNA (Oshkosh Student Nurses Association) joined forces to collect 2 big boxes of new school supplies for area school kids for the United Way.  These donations go a long way to help students have a better school year.

Have a great school year and we will post information here for the Fall 2019 School Supply Drive!


Message from United Way:
Thank you for organizing the School Supply collection at UW Oshkosh College of Nursing.  Your donations are a true investment in the students of Oshkosh.  Because of you and others like you, students have the supplies they need to be successful in school.  And research shows, success in school sets the foundation for a good quality of life!
Thank you again.  It is always a pleasure to work with you.
Oshkosh Area United Way,
