Help us collect school supplies for 15,000 local kids!

Many of my students would not have the supplies they need on a daily basis if it weren’t for Schoolhouse Supplies!

Brandi Freeman, 5th Grade Teacher, Patrick Lynch Elementary School

Since opening our doors in 1999, our mission remains the same: to support public education in the Portland area by providing free school supplies to students in need. We do this because we 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.

Our ultimate goal is to level the playing field so every child has access to the tools that allow them to achieve academic success and feel confident. Our programs achieve additional goals through community engagement, supporting public school teachers and keeping supplies out of the waste stream. With the community’s support, including nearly 900 volunteers each year, Schoolhouse Supplies has distributed over $30 million in free school supplies and benefited hundreds of thousands of children.

My students show up to school with only the clothes on their back. Being able to access Schoolhouse Supplies allows for all my students to have materials that allow them to engage in lessons and grow as learners.
