Each year do you wonder what to do with your extra school supplies? Do you see terrific deals on crayons? Well, you can donate them through DDEF; just bag them up and turn them into the Special Projects Office at the District Office (11300 NE Halsey).

Some commonly needed supplies are: pencils, pens, colored pencils, crayons, scissors, rulers, index cards, spiral notebooks, glue sticks, baby wipes, facial tissues, backpacks, etc. To stretch your donation dollars, watch for early school supply sales.

For more information on supplies needed, see the “School Supply List” section on your neighborhood school’s website found on the District website, or contact Special Projects at 503.261.8204.
