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!
Special thanks to:
KGW School Supply Drive 2016 Sponsors:
OnPoint Community Credit Union
2016 Match Partners:
2016 Business Leaders:
Alten Sakai & Company LLP

We are ready for another successful supply drive in 2017! Local business and community organizations can serve as collection sites for this year’s KGW Supply Drive, July 24-August 23!
