Dinerral Shavers Educational Fund School Supply Drive

The Tulane University Staff Advisory Council (SAC) is happy to start each academic year supporting the Dinerral Shavers Educational Fund Annual Back to School Extravaganza.  SAC and the Ashé Cultural Arts Center co-sponsor this free school supply giveaway annually to support all New Orleans public school students. In 2018, Tulane donated over 30 boxes of school supplies to DSEF. The 2018 Extravaganza was held at the Ashé Cultural Arts Center and featured live performances, free health and dental screenings, free haircuts, and activities. 

The 2019 supply drive will be held August 1-30. The 11th Annual Dinerral Shavers Educational Fund Annual Back to School Extravaganza will be held at Ashé Cultural Arts Center on Saturday, September 28, 2019.
