- What We Do
Schoolhouse Supplies serves classrooms in need by operating a volunteer-run Free Store for Teachers, which is stocked with supplies donated by the community. Our store is a place of support and inspiration for teachers who regularly $1,700 dollars of their own money each year to purchase classroom materials that students and strained school budgets cannot provide.
