OnPoint Community Credit Union Matching Donations to the KGW School Supply Drive

Press Release

2023 is the 16th year OnPoint has partnered with the KGW School Supply Drive to send students back to school with the tools they need to learn.

PORTLAND, Ore., July 31, 2023 – To support local students heading back to school in the fall, OnPoint Community Credit Union announced today it will give an additional $5 for every $1 donated to the KGW School Supply Drive at OnPoint branches between July 31-August 5*. OnPoint branches will also be accepting school supply donations (which will stay in the community where the donation is made) going directly to help local teachers and students, and distributed with the help of Schoolhouse Supplies. The KGW School Supply Drive, which runs from today through August 31, aims to send 15,000 students across Oregon and Southwest Washington back to school with the tools they need to succeed in the classroom.

“Going back to school is an exciting time, but for many families, purchasing school supplies can be a financial strain,” said Rob Stuart, President and Chief Executive Officer, OnPoint Community Credit Union. “Having the necessary tools and resources helps students succeed in school. Inspired and engaged young people are the foundation of strong communities. We encourage you to join us in our efforts to support the next generation.”

As part of this year’s drive, OnPoint will host collection events where the community can drop off new school supplies and cash donations at its Lloyd Center Branch (1100 NE Weidler St., Portland, OR 97232) and at the Clackamas Promenade in the Target parking lot.
