A message from KGW
“Doing well in school prepares children for a successful life as an adult. Sadly, many children go to school without the basic supplies to do their classwork. This is a problem we can solve. Just a few dollars get paper and pencils into the hands of these kids. We appreciate the support of our business partners who join with us and the whole community to help local children succeed.”

About the KGW School Supply Drive
The KGW School Supply Drive collection period begins July 30 and continues through August 29. The goal of the drive is to collect enough school supplies and cash to send 12,000 students back to school with the supplies needed to succeed. In Oregon nearly half of all children live in low-income families and cannot afford even the most basic school supplies. Throughout the drive, the public is encouraged to make cash and school supply donations of any amount. A $25 donation provides one student with basic supplies needed for an entire year. All donations, benefiting local area schools, are distributed with the help of Schoolhouse Supplies.
