Sac Pack Drive - donate school supplies!

Graduating? Wrapping up your semester? Downsizing or on the move? Many students have extra supplies that they didn't use or no longer need - Community Engagement Center's Sac Pack Drive helps students of all ages "re-home" new and gently used school/art supplies for the benefit of youth in need through local non-profit organizations. (See our donation wish list.)

While donations are accepted year round, Sac Pack Drive features a campus-wide donation drive at the end of fall and spring semesters.

Become a sponsor

During our spring drive, Community Engagement Center collaborates with campus clubs and organizations to maximize our ability to reach and recruit potential donors. Sponsorship is as easy as hosting a collection site and promoting the drive. If you or your Sac State club or department would like to sponsor a collection site, we ask that your organization provide a means of collecting the donated materials (a box, bin, or other suitable collection receptacle), and email us the following: where the collection receptacle is located, whether it is available for public drop off or just to your members, and who will be the main point of contact for your group (name, phone and email).

We are also looking for student clubs who are interested in sponsoring collection days in the University Union. Please contact us for more information.

For more information or questions regarding the Sac Pack Drive, please contact We appreciate your support and look forward to collaborating in service to the community.
