2023 School Supply Drive


July 7, 2023

Dear Subscriber,

The  Maryland Port Administration (MPA) is continuing for another year to team up with Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) for the 2023 School Supply Drive. This will be a joint campaign with MDOT, Maryland State Department of Education, and the Boys and Girls Club of Maryland to benefit students from Western Maryland to the Eastern Shore for this coming school year.

This year’s campaign will run from July 10th through July 28th.  Last year, the School Supply Drive resulted in 1,000 supply bags and $2,000 in monetary donations that helped place students on the right track for a successful academic year.  This year we want to top both of those numbers and we need your help!
