Here at Schoolhouse Supplies, we’re all about making friends. After all, our business is fundamentally about helping others succeed. So, as you can imagine, we’re huge advocates of lasting friendships, as well as the belief that everyone deserves a buddy. But here’s a fun fact about us; we don’t just believe that everyone deserves a friend. We also strongly believe that everything deserves one too. That’s right, from squirrels to ferns, condiments to even school supplies—everything needs a buddy.
Unfortunately, there’s been a recent epidemic of loneliness in our Free Store for Teachers. Even basic tools such as pens and crayons have been running out of friends. The scissors are thinning out rapidly, while the erasers are virtually nowhere to be found. The backpacks are huddled together in a protective bin, and it seems Elmer has only one remaining friend. We’ve even heard dejected cries and lonely sniffles coming from the markers and calculators. Who can blame them? It’s depressing.
Seriously though, at a time when supplies in our classrooms are rapidly dwindling, the need is even higher at the Free Store for Teachers. That’s why we’re asking you to help us. Our most needed items are any one of the tools mentioned above, along with looseleaf paper, colored pencils, or basic art supplies. If you don’t have any of those materials on hand, discountschoolsupply.com is a great place to purchase them online. For example, right now, they’re selling a box of 8 Crayola Crayons for just $0.87, and Elmer’s 4 oz. Glue for $0.98. Of course, if online shopping isn’t your thing, you can’t go wrong with looking for supplies at your neighborhood Fred Meyer. So help us sustain friendships, while also ensuring that every child in our community has the tools they need to succeed by donating today. Donations can be dropped off any Monday through Friday, 9 am – 5 pm at 2735 NE 82nd Ave.
