It’s August 1st and that means it’s the first days of the KGW School Supply Drive where you can help us send 8,000 kids in need back to school with supplies! Donating is easy: Drop off supplies at participating OnPoint Community Credit Union branches, local Toyota dealerships, or University of Phoenix locations, as well more than 70 other collection sites across the metro area. Or you can donate online where every $25 donated provides a child with a year’s worth of school supplies. Find out more at KGW.com/school
There’s also still time to sign up to be a collection site this August. Schoolhouse Supplies will provide a collection bin to put in your office and get you everything you need to spread the word and collect school supplies all month long! Sign Up Here!
