Tools for Schools

Participate in the 2020 Tools for Schools program and help local children start school ready to learn and succeed!

Since 2003, Schoolhouse Supplies’ Tools for Schools program has distributed nearly 170,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to low income children.

The Tools for Schools backpack giveaway program provides every student at participating schools a new backpack filled with new school supplies. For many of the children, these may be the only new items that they receive all year.

To learn more about the Tools for Schools program and how you can partner with Schoolhouse Supplies in supporting local children, visit here or contact Mayra Camacho at or (503) 249-9933 x4.

Thank you to our 2019 partners for your dedication to children and community – you’re the best!! We sent almost 12,000 students back to school with new backpacks filled with supplies they need to learn! This was possible thanks to the nearly 1,400 volunteers hours donated to help pack and hand out backpacks.
