SPE Cares School Supply Drive

SPE CaresAs SPE's flagship event, ATCE provides a great opportunity for attendees to give back to the community that hosts ATCE for the week. In 2016, SPE launched a new initiative called SPE Cares, a SPE Community Service initiative, aimed at supporting education, humanitarian, and social community services at the section and student chapter level. 

This year, SPE Cares will conduct a school supply drive to help support local schools participating in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) problems. Volunteers are needed to help collect products and supplies for students and classrooms, and also to help package the items at the SPE Cares booth at ATCE. 

SPE Cares encourages community service and networking among SPE members from around the world as we gather for the largest SPE meeting held in Dallas. Take part in this great program and register as a volunteer. For more information, please email specares@spe.org.

Volunteer Requirements

Volunteers are asked to help procure items for the school supply drive. Items include:

  • notebooks
  • binders
  • folders
  • pens
  • pencils,
  • sharpies
  • highlighters
  • erasers
  • glue sticks
  • colored pencils
  • markers
  • calculators
  • backpacks

Please collect these goods in the weeks leading up to ATCE. Items will need to be delivered no later than 23 September 2018.

Volunteers are also asked to stop by our designated booth at ATCE to help put together care packages. This activity should take no longer than 5-10 minutes per volunteer, and can be accomplished during coffee breaks, lunch, and while visiting the exhibition booths.
