The start of school is right around the corner! UWA is supporting local educators by stocking their classrooms for the upcoming school year.

You can make a difference in one of these four ways:

1. Pick up extra supplies and drop them off at a local business or United Way of Acadiana.

2. Shop our Amazon Wish List and send supplies directly to UWA! (Click here!)

3. Donate directly to our Stuff the Bus fund!  (Click here!)

4. Own a business? Become a drop-off location for supplies! (Click here!)
