Schoolhouse Supplies promotes educational equity in Portland area public schools by providing free school supplies to under-resourced students and classrooms. Our goal is to ensure that every child has access to the learning tools that allow them to achieve academic success, regardless of their family’s income or racial/ethnic identity.
Bottom Line for Portland
Since 1999, Schoolhouse Supplies has been a critical support system for so many students and classrooms. Our programs help equip under-resourced classrooms with the learning tools that children and teachers need to create learning-environments that feel equitable and comfortable for all. It is more important than ever to help provide school supplies beyond the first day of school; gifts made during this campaign will help 1,000 children with the supplies they need to succeed this school year.
“Many of my students would not have the supplies that they need if we did not provide them. Having access to free school supplies helps me to provide for my students. They come to class with the same supplies as their peers and no one knows the difference.” – Cheryl Bland, Science/Social Studies Teacher, Ron Russell Middle School
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
At Schoolhouse Supplies we commit to include the voices of those we serve in every programmatic decision we make. Our commitment to educational equity means we must be advised from the students and teachers we serve as they come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, enriched with knowledge that creates positive community and organizational engagement and holistic decision making.
