Support Students During the School Tools Drive

Newport News Shipbuilding’s annual School Tools Drive will help provide school supplies for thousands of students across the area as they prepare for next school year.

Shipbuilders are asked to donate new school supplies in support of the drive. See a list of most-needed items and frequently asked questions on MyNNS.

Shipbuilders can donate online at through Aug. 5. Online donations are not taxed and supplies are shipped directly to the selected agency. Purchases are tax deductible.

Weatherproof containers will be located inside the gates at turnstiles for convenient supply drop off. For department competitions and fundraisers, boxes will be available for pick up at Bldg. 103 and Shipyard Drive (southeast bay door) and NetCenter, beginning Wednesday, July 20.

The drive will support students served by departments of social services in Newport News, Hampton and York County/ Poquoson; Boys & Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula; ForKids/Homeless Assistance; and An Achievable Dream.
