KGW School Supply Drive 2017 – Thank You!!

July 12, 2018

Thank you to the hundreds of individuals and businesses who participated in the Schoolhouse Supplies fundraising appeal and the KGW School Supply Drive this summer.

Your back-to-school donations are already benefiting the 65,000 children whose teachers can visit our Free Store for Teachers this 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.  Thanks to your generosity, we are closer to our goal.
