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.

We know having adequate supplies when heading back to school is a huge challenge for many families in Oregon and SW WA. That's why we feel so passionate about the KGW School Supply Drive. We're thankful that it exists for the children who need it the most.

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.
