This fall, as Portland area schools entered the back-to-school season, 12,941 students returned to find the supplies they need instead of an empty desk!
This year, 25 local businesses stepped up to sponsor our Tools for Schools program, which partners each business with a high-needs school (where 65% or more of the students live at or below the poverty line). Each of these students receives a free backpack filled with enough school supplies to support an entire year of learning.
If you would like to learn more about sponsoring backpacks full of supplies for a school please contact us.
