Supply drives are fun and easy to host. Collections are perfect for office team building, church and civic group activities, and even birthday parties. Below are our current supply drive priorities.
Mary Lou's Closet
Across the nation, Mary Lou Young is considered a national thought leader and an agent for change. As the former President and CEO of United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County, Mary Lou raised millions of dollars to create lasting change in her community.
Her legacy of service lives on with Mary Lou’s Closet. This year-round supply drive will help to mobilize basic need items for youth. Donations will be distributed through the Milwaukee Community Schools Partnership and United Way’s family of funded agencies and partners. Needed supplies include health & hygiene items such as deodorant, tampons and pads, body wash/wipes, winter gear, and undergarments.

If your workplace or community group is interested in mobilizing supplies year-round, please consider sponsoring an on-site closet at one of our community schools.

Access to a sufficient supply of diapers is essential for the health of infants and toddlers, but too many families do not have the resources to adequately provide for this basic need. Get involved by running a diaper collection drive at your workplace or organization. Visit our Diaper Bank page to learn more about our Diaper bank and find more ways to get involved!
