Thank you to OnPoint Community Credit Union’s for an amazing, much-needed and much-appreciated $25,000 gift.
Their generosity is helping Schoolhouse Supplies surpass our original goal of distributing 20,000 At-Home Learning Kits. An additional nearly 3,000 kits are already in the hands of local students and more are on the way. Without this support, we would not be able to respond so effectively to our school partners and their families. In addition, we are able to purchase new product that we typically would not be able to provide at this time of year.
Even as we look ahead to the next school year, OnPoint is helping us meet the urgent and unprecedented need right now.
In response to the COVID 19 mandates from Oregon’s state leadership, and because our priority is the people we care about, Schoolhouse Supplies has made changes to our programs and processes which are outlined in this blog.
