KGW, in partnership with OnPoint Community Credit Union, Papa Murphy’s, and Great Clips are proud to announce the 9th annual KGW School Supply Drive! The KGW School Supply Drive runs July 19 through August 18. The goal of the drive is to collect enough school supplies and cash to send 8,000 students back to school with the supplies needed to succeed. In Oregon, nearly half of all children live in low-income families and cannot afford even the most basic school supplies.

There are several ways you can help with the drive:

  • Donate cash or school supplies at any OnPoint Community Credit Union.
  • Donate at a Greater Portland area Great Clips salon and Great Clips will add a haircut to your donation for a child in need, up to 1000 haircuts.
  • Make a cash donation online or via text and receive a coupon for $5 off a family size pizza at Papa Murphy’s.
  • Donate funds online at
  • Text donations to 41444.

A $25 donation allows Schoolhouse Supplies, KGW’s nonprofit partner, to provide one child with the school supplies needed for an entire year. Donations remain in the district in which they are made.
