The KGW School Supply Drive

Thank you!

We set an ambitious goal to raise school supplies for 12,000 kids. Instead, you donated school supplies for more than 20,000 kids!

Thank you for your generosity, and for caring so much about your community.

Great Clips is committed to helping students start the year off right. Great Clips is matching school supply donations with a free haircut to a child in need, donating up to 1,000 haircuts to the KGW School Supply Drive. By giving kids the tools they need to succeed in the classroom now, we are helping to ensure they have a bright future. On behalf of Great Clips and the greater Portland area franchisees, we are proud to give back by investing in our community.

A Note about the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, schools, teachers, and parents are struggling to prepare for an unpredictable school year. And KGW can't collect physical school supplies like we have in the past.

  • Teachers depleted their extra supplies they may have had at the start of the pandemic.
  • Students are unable to share supplies for health and safety reasons.
  • Parents are shouldering a larger burden in the education of their children.

The reality is this year is different—including the KGW School Supply Drive. The need is even bigger, you can make a huge difference.
