“Back-to-School” will definitely look different this year, but we still want to support and celebrate a return to learning! Friendly House, our neighborhood non-profit community school, is holding a Back-to-School-ish Supply Drive to help parents, students and teachers feel prepared and able to focus on other important areas of need. Your donations of supplies, money or time will support local students facing economic hardship by providing school supplies directly to them at home for Oregon’s distance learning 2020 school start. If all students are well equipped, a more equal learning environment is created and self esteem is boosted.

Supplies will be distributed by volunteers to highest need students at Chapman Elementary, Metropolitan Learning Center and West Sylvan Schools. Your support will help secure books, paper, notebooks, rulers, pencils, scissors, calculators, glue, art supplies, face masks, sanitizer, wipes and other supplies to make at home distance learning more equitable and accessible to all children.

Please consider donating some of these supplies or contributing to their purchase.
