Mission Statement

Schoolhouse Supplies serves classrooms in need by operating a volunteer-run free store for teachers, which is stocked with supplies donated by the community.

Description

Imagine the frustration of a child who wants to learn, yet lacks the basic tools--pencils, crayons, even paper. Did you know that school teachers spend an average of $600 each year of their own money for supplies for their students that parents and strained school budgets cannot provide?

Schoolhouse Supplies collects surplus products from businesses and individuals in our community and uses these items to stock a unique store for Portland Public School teachers--where everything is free!

Built on a foundation of extraordinary community support, Schoolhouse Supplies has distributed over $8 million worth of supplies to classrooms in Portland Public Schools.
