We are overjoyed to announce the generous donation of a refurbished GMC Savana from Fred Meyer, a longtime partner and supporter of the organization. The van will be used to help our organization pick up and deliver supplies, and to continue the mission to support public education in Portland by giving students and teachers free classroom supplies.
“Since we opened our doors in 1999, we have relied solely on volunteer and staff vehicles to support our ongoing supply pickup and donation needs,” notes Jen Barth, Schoolhouse Supplies Executive Director. “This generous donation will allow us to make even more of an impact on local teachers, students, and families in our community.”
“Fred Meyer is honored to support the Schoolhouse Supplies Free Store for Teachers with this van donation,” said Melinda Merrill, Director of Public Affairs for Fred Meyer. “Knowing that this vehicle will empower the organization to mobilize in even more ways to support local teachers is a great inspiration to us all.”
