Opportunity Details

Support the Free Store for Teachers (age 12+) *Impact Week*

Since opening our doors in 1999, the Schoolhouse Supplies mission remains the same: to promote educational equity in Portland area public schools by providing free school supplies to under-resourced students and classrooms. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that every child has access to learning tools that allow them to achieve academic success, regardless of their family’s income or racial/ethnic identity. Our program delivery model achieves additional goals through community engagement and by keeping supplies out of the waste stream.

Every pencil, notebook, and crayon that our volunteers touch will wind up in the hands of a student who otherwise would not have had the tools needed to learn. We always need support to sort and process donations for the Free Store for Teachers. During this service project, volunteers will help us tally donations,  prepare products, and stock the Free Store for Teachers. 

Most of the jobs involve standing, lifting, and moving through the warehouse and Free Store. Wear comfortable clothing and shoes, and bring a water bottle!
