A teacher at Kelly Elementary School in SE Portland recently told a group of Schoolhouse Supplies donors that “you are donating learning.” Without Schoolhouse Supplies he said, “I wouldn’t be able to do my job” – and neither could his students.
When you contribute to Schoolhouse Supplies, you give children the tools they need to be successful students and you make a difference for thousands of familiesin your community.
Your back-to-school donation this summer will benefit over 50,000 children whose teachers will visit the Free Store for Teachers this coming school year. When a teacher visits the Free Store, essential school supplies are placed directly into the hands of students who need them.
Help us send local schoolchildren back to school ready to learn. Stop by one of our three office Collection Centers for the KGW School Supply Drive this week. Notebooks, glue sticks, regular & colored pencils, erasers, scissors, and rulers all help. Your donations are greatly appreciated by the students and their families (and teachers!). Together, we can help the school year get off to a good start:
