In 2014, Sigma Alpha Epsilon started a new annual tradition pairing with the University of Minnesota Bookstore in Coffman Memorial Union to bring school supplies to local Twin Cities schools in need through Supplies for Students. Supplies for Students is intended to raise school supplies for Pratt Community Schools, a local organization in need.
Students checking out at the bookstore during the first week of school have the opportunity to purchase extra notebooks, pens, pencils, etc. to donate to this Twin Cities school. In addition, students can donate directly to the cause during checkout.
