Back To School Donations

About the Drive

The Back 2 School Drive for Douglas County is a collaborative effort between local school districts, non-profits, and community volunteers to meet the school supply needs of students and teachers in our county. This includes public schools in Lawrence (USD497), Eudora (USD491), and Baldwin City (USD348).
