OU collecting backpacks, school supplies for Pontiac Schools through August 15

The Academic Affairs office and Black Employee Resource Group (BERG) Community Outreach Committee at Oakland University are sponsoring a backpack and school supplies drive through August 15.

All donations will go to the Pontiac School District to help support their growing need of new school supplies for more than 5,000 students in the district.

“We learned from conversations with the school district that they were in critical need of backpacks and other school supplies to start the school year and provide students the tools they need to be successful,” said Scott L. Crabill, Ph.D., interim vice provost for undergraduate education at Oakland University.

The backpacks and school supplies are being collected at the Center for Multicultural Affairs (CMI) offices located at 104 North Foundation Hall on the campus of Oakland University.

More information is available by emailing Arthur Hampton, CORE program coordinator for CMI at hampton2@oakland.edu or by calling the CMI offices at (248) 370-4404.
