1,100 Backpacks for 1,100 MUSD Students!

Long Realty volunteers packing backpacks with shool supplies

*** IMPORTANT NOTICE: 7/21/2022 11:30AM ***
The MUSD Back-to-School Backpack & School Supply Event has distributed ALL backpacks, school supplies, and rainchecks, and no additional supplies or rainchecks are available. 
As a result, the remainder of the event is cancelled. MUSD families may contact our Family Resource Center for future needs. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.


Marana Unified School District would like to thank YES (Youth Education Supporters) who raised enough funds to enable Marana Schools to distribute 1,100 new backpacks filled with a variety of school supplies for the new school year! Backpacks and school supplies will be given to students at the upcoming MUSD Backpack & School Supply event on July 21 and 22. 

Thank you for supporting Marana Students!

Nearly 100 people gave almost $14,000 to make this a reality.  Additionally, this amount more than matches the $5,000 challenge from the Stocker Foundation. Many others directed their donations to the S.O.S. (Success of Students) funds, which are used on an ongoing basis to provide everything from prescription glasses to field trip fees and more for those students most in need.
