May is Teacher Appreciation Month. This month we will be collecting donations for Schoolhouse Supplies - an award-winning nonprofit that supports public education in Portland by giving students and teachers free classroom supplies. Their mission is to serve classrooms in need by operating a volunteer-run Free Store for Teachers, which is stocked with supplies donated by the community, based on the belief that every child deserves school supplies and has the right to a quality education.
In addition to providing school supplies to Teachers via the Free Store, Schoolhouse Supplies has the Tools for Schools program, which to date has distributed over 157,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to low income children. With the community’s support, Schoolhouse Supplies has distributed $30M in free school supplies and benefited hundreds of thousands of children.
Each year thousands of students and teachers begin a new school year and are in need of new supplies. Join us in giving back to our public schools by bringing a donation of school supplies from the following list to your next appointment! Or, to make a monetary contribution, click the button.
