25 Drive Volunteer Information

25 Drive Volunteer Information

What is the 25 Drive?
The 25 Drive is a school supply drive with a twist. This year is unconventional – so is the need from our students. We are using this drive to bring our students, teachers, and families the materials they need this year.

The 25 Drive in Emporia will be on Saturday, April 24th at the William Allen White Library (ESU campus) – 1 Kellogg Circle – from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm. We will be collecting a variety of high-needs items for students at Emporia High School, Logan Avenue Elementary, Walnut Elementary, and William Allen White Elementary.

What will I be doing?
Volunteers helping with the 25 Drive will help with set-up, item collection, item sorting, and clean-up. The schedule below will outline what tasks volunteers will fulfill based on their assigned time slot.

Upon arrival, check-in with a CIS employee for assignment.

Schedule:
9:15 AM – 11:15 AM: Setting up tables and tailgate tent, placing signage around drop-off zone, collecting items
11:00 AM – 1:00 PM: Collecting and sorting items, cleaning off tables and bins, breaking down tables/tent

What safety precautions will we be taking?
We want to make sure all volunteers and CIS staff are putting safety first.


We ask that if you do not feel well, have not been feeling well, or have been in contact with someone
who has not been feeling well – PLEASE stay home. Health is a priority!


For those able to participate, PPE should be worn at all times. Masks and gloves will be available for use. We will also have hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes. Use these items generously.

Items drop-off will be contactless. Drivers will stay in their cars and volunteers will collect items using bins. Large items that do not fit in bins can be collected with gloved hands.

If you have any safety concerns before or during the event – please bring them to the attention of a CIS employee and we will address it immediately.
