Fred Meyer Stores is the presenting sponsor of the Schoolhouse Supplies Celebrity Spelling Bee this year.
Fred Meyer’s presenting sponsorship is the retailer’s most recent demonstration of support for Schoolhouse Supplies. Fred Meyer Stores was a founding partner of School House Supplies and has provided more than $300,000 of funding and consistently stocks the shelves of the Free Store with product over the past 16 years.
“Schoolhouse Supplies has been an amazing partner of ours for many years now and we are so excited to be presenting sponsor of this fun event in 2016,” said Melinda Merrill, manager of community affairs for Fred Meyer. “The support that the organization provides to teachers and schools throughout the area is invaluable and the Celebrity Spelling Bee fundraiser is a great opportunity to highlight that mission.”
“We have enjoyed working with the staff and leadership of Fred Meyer over the years and are grateful that they believe in our mission,” said Alice Forbes, Schoolhouse Supplies’ Executive Director. “We look forward to continuing to work with Fred Meyer to ensure that all of Portland’s students and teachers have the tools they need for educational success.”
