Day 6: Schoolhouse Supplies

Chanukah is a time that we celebrate light. In this darkest time of year, help us bring light to nonprofits in our community. This December in our 8 Days of Giving campaign, we’re highlighting some of our favorite local community organizations. 100% of the donations collected on this page will go directly to the organization featured! Check back tomorrow to see who’s next!

Since opening their doors in 1999, the Schoolhouse Supplies mission remains the same: to support public education in the Portland area by providing free school supplies to students in need. They do this because they believe that every child deserves school supplies and has the right to a quality education regardless of their family’s income or racial/ethnic identity.

“I love Schoolhouse Supplies and am soooo soooo soooo glad we have it. Families in our community who are struggling often worry more about food and rent than school supplies. Having this program takes school supplies off their list. It gives all students the same opportunity to come to school (either in real life or online) with what they need.”
