Donate School Supplies 

Eden Prairie’s annual community-driven process for providing school supplies to students in need is changing to a single back-to-school program with collaborative help from community partners for the 2017/2018 school year. No longer will there be registration at PROP, nor will PROP be asking for financial donations to purchase supplies. Instead, PROP, along with Grace Church and Eden Prairie Community Education, will be drop off sites for school supplies.

Below are the THREE drop off sites where you can donate school supplies. Click on Grace Church and Community Education to find out information about their hours, most needed items, and contact information.

DEADLINE: all supplies must be at drop off sites by August 13.


M-F: 9:30A.M. – 1:00P.M. & W: 4:00P.M. – 6:30 P.M.
