Place needed school supplies in the hands of Metro Nashville Public Schools students & teachers by donating to the DG PENCIL Box.

With many MNPS students coming from economically disadvantaged households, the DG PENCIL Box is the community’s collective effort to ensure no student is hindered by lack of supplies. Having the proper supplies in the classroom can help decrease absenteeism, improve classroom learning, and more. By donating school supplies or hosting a supply drive, you are part of this effort. 

We are always eager to hear from those who are interested in donating to the Box. Please contact PENCIL’s Robert Moxley at to coordinate your donation or drive. Due to the nature of the Box, we are only able to accept donations Monday-Friday by appointment only.

If you are interested in donating new school supplies, please consider the following most-needed items:

  • Pencils
  • Crayons
  • Colored pencils
  • Markers
  • Erasers
  • Dry erase markers

  • Pencil sharpeners

  • Composition notebooks

  • Pencil boxes/pouches

  • Band-aids

With your help, we are able to provide students and teachers across the district with the tools that they need to succeed in the classroom. We appreciate your time and commitment to making public education equitable in our community.
