EducationCorps Tools for Schools


Receive 20% Off School Supplies from the UCSD Bookstore to Benefit “Tools for Schools”
This is how it works: Between May 5-9, shop the UCSD Bookstore supply department located on the second floor. Bring your school supplies to any register. When you tell the cashier you will be dropping them off in a “Tools for Schools” collection box on your way out – you’ll receive a 20% discount. Donation boxes are located at the first floor entrance, second floor entrance, Imprints/Perks entrance, and Library Walk entrance. The boxes will be brightly decorated with red and white stripes, and marked with “Tools for Schools” signage. (Note: 20% discount applies only to school supplies that will be donated to Tools for Schools, and the customer must tell the cashier before the transaction begins.)
Donate Your Change to Benefit “Tools for Schools”
Between May 5-9, the UCSD Bookstore will collect change at the Perks and Customer Service counters – both located on the first floor, inside the UCSD Bookstore. At the end of UCSD Cares Week, all donated change will be used to purchase additional school supplies for the “Tools for Schools” beneficiaries.
All school supplies collected to benefit the “Tools for Schools” drive will be donated directly to classrooms of the following San Diego schools: McGill Elementary School of Success, Linda Vista Elementary, Kit Carson Elementary, Bell Middle School, E3 Civic High School, Serra High School, John Muir K-12, King Chavez, The Preuss School, Farb Middle School, Mission Bay High School, Bethune K-8 School.
