Help set students up for long-term success by donating essential items to Urbana School District 116 or Champaign Unit 4.
Operation Caring Closets is a collaborative partnership between the CU Schools Foundation, United Way of Champaign County, Urbana School District #116, and Champaign Unit 4 School District. Each school district relies on one or more “caring closets” that stock essential items for students—like warm clothes, hygiene products, and school supplies—and makes them available to students on an as-needed basis. Without these items, students are at greater risk of falling behind today, which could impact them throughout their lives.
Items on these wishlists were specifically chosen by each school district, so these are supplies that students truly need. Once items arrive at the district’s registry location, they will be distributed to the proper caring closet to help students in that district.
