Schoolhouse Supplies has done the same great thing for 16 years: provide free school supplies to students in need. We will keep doing this, but we need to make some changes. This year, our landlord, Portland Public Schools, began charging rent for our space in the basement of Madison High School. This has reduced the resources for supply purchases and staff. And next year, we need to move.
We also recognize that Portland’s demographics continue to shift and we need to adjust our service delivery model to better serve east Portland.
Help us envision what this new future looks like!
Please join our new Executive Director Alice Forbes at one of four open forum discussions.
