KGW School Supply Drive 2020

KGW School Supply Drive—Supporting Students and Teachers

The start of the school year is a time of new beginnings. Meeting new teachers and reuniting with friends comes with much anticipation and excitement. On top of all that, some students will be concerned about having sufficient school supplies. Access to a backpack, pencils, notebook paper, erasers and glue sticks is an essential part of back to school—yet for many families, purchasing new school supplies can be a financial strain.

This summer marks the 15th year OnPoint has supported the KGW School Supply Drive. As we assist our children’s return to school, we understand that this year will present many challenges for students. Half of the students in our community begin school lacking the necessary supplies to thrive. In 2021, supplies were distributed in more than 75 individual school districts to more than 23,000 students.

Make your donation at an OnPoint branch.

From now through August 31, OnPoint will accept school supplies and monetary donations for the KGW School Supply Drive at any of our branches. A $25 donation sends a student back to school ready to learn with the supplies they need. Want to maximize your donation? From August 1 to August 6, for every $1 donated at an OnPoint branch, we will contribute an additional $5. This means if you donate $25 during that week, our match will turn your donation into $150—providing supplies for up to six students.

Acceptable school supply contributions include backpacks, colored pencils, composition, books, crayons, erasers, glue sticks, loose-leaf notebook paper, markers, pencils and pens. Like previous years, all monetary and supply contributions will stay in the community where the donation was made.

KGW School Supply Drive tech drops.

Have electronic devices you are no longer using? KGW is again partnering with Free Geek to collect devices that will be refurbished and put back into our community for free.

We believe in investing in the futures of our local youth and are dedicated to giving back to our community. The KGW School Supply Drive has collected enough supplies for more than 100,000 students over the years. With your help, we hope this year will make an even greater impact.
