The Give!Guide is Live!

November 12, 2013

G!G_2013_LogoEvery year, the Willamette Week Give!Guide creates a highly-dynamic hub for learning about, and giving to area nonprofits. Schoolhouse Supplies is honored to be one of the 129 nonprofits selected for this year’s Give!Guide.

With prizes, incentives and events throughout November and December, giving couldn’t be more fun and rewarding.

Last year, the Give!Guide raised more than one million dollars for area nonprofits. This year, the goal is more than two million. Consider supporting the organizations that shore up our community.

You will find Schoolhouse Supplies under Education.

Funds raised from the Give!Guide helps to keep school supplies in stock in our Free Store for Teachers.
