Schoolhouse Supplies

Mission

Schoolhouse Supplies supports public education in the Portland area by providing free school supplies to students in need. We believe that every child deserves school supplies and has the right to a quality education, regardless of economic circumstance.

Bottom Line for Portland

Schoolhouse Supplies reduces learning disparities and increases school readiness by providing access to essential learning tools. Last year, more than 80,000 local students received $2.8 million in free school supplies, including 589,543 pencils and 45,391 books. All thanks to 5,000-plus donors and nearly 1,000 volunteers!

“In a time when my students are making the choice between affording a meal or affording school supplies, I am grateful that the supplies I got from the Free Store help my kids still feel school-ready and full.”
