On Friday, October 15, 2021, the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee’s African Diaspora Council (ADC), an affinity resource group comprised of faculty and staff at UWM, presented two car-loads of school supplies they had collected for area students. The students who attend these schools often do so without the basic tools necessary for learning, like pencils and paper. Last year the ADC was able to provide school supplies to a second “adopted” school in the 53206 zip code. Through the generous support of ADC members, retirees, alumni and friends, the UWM community and our external partners, Lafollette Elementary and Hopkins Lloyd Community Schools had supplies ready for the students.
