Update March 25, 2020: In response to the COVID 19 mandates from Oregon’s state leadership, and because our priority is the people we care about, Schoolhouse Supplies will be closed to the public until further notice. We will reopen to the public when advised it is appropriate to do so. We will provide timely updates of any changes.
During this closure:
The Free Store for Teachers is closed. If the Free Store is closed during your scheduled shopping week, make-up weeks will be scheduled. New schedules will be communicated on our website and to teachers who have registered to shop at the Free Store.
We are working with school districts and nonprofit partners to distribute school supplies to students during this time.
All volunteer shifts and group volunteer programs are cancelled.
We will not be on-site to receive product donations. If you have a larger donation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a future date.
Volunteers will not be available to pick-up donations at your facility.
All staff are being asked to work remotely as much as possible which means they will not be at the Schoolhouse Supplies facility to answer questions. Please email staff if you need anything. Email email@example.com if you do not know who to contact.
Thank you for your understanding and please take care of yourself.
