KGW School Supply Drive 2016- Thank You!

June 8, 2017

Thank you to the hundreds of individuals and businesses who participated in the Schoolhouse Supplies fundraising appeal and the KGW School Supply Drive in 2016. The generosity of our community resulted in $273,773 in School Supplies to local students!

 

Your back-to-school donations benefit over 60,000 children whose teachers will visit our Free Store for Teachers during the school year.  When a teacher visits the Free Store, essential school supplies are placed directly into the hands of students who need them.  KGW School Supply Drive product and financial donations outside of the Portland area support that community’s local school district.

 

Schoolhouse Supplies relies on the back-to-school season to generate fully one-third of the financial support needed to operate the Free Store for Teachers.  Thank you!
