If you're wondering what school supplies you should donate, St. Cloud has published their annual school supply list for each grade level and school online.

Most commonly needed items throughout the district include; crayons, glue sticks, markers, dry erase markers, folders, pencils, 3 ring binders, notebooks, loose leaf lined paper, scissors, highlighters, glue, pens sticks and more.

Other less commonly donated items include; headphones, earbuds, masking tape, scientific calculator with a fraction key, note cards and planners.

Because of COVID-19 schools are in need of more masks, Clorox wipes, Kleenex and hand sanitizer.

The school supply items will be delivered to the District's main office in Waite Park on Monday, August 31.
