Thank you to our school supply collection sites and everyone who donated to help VPS students start the school year ready to learn!

The collection has ended for this year, but you can still make a donation toward basic needs to get students the resources they need to thrive this school year.

About the Write from the Start School Supply Drive:

An initiative of the Foundation for Vancouver Public Schools, the Write from the Start School Drive collects supplies and funds to help the 11,000 Vancouver Public School students who live in poverty within all 37 VPS schools & programs start the school year with the supplies they need to be successful. Special thanks to Dick Hannah Dealerships for matching the first $10,000 in monetary donations and to our media partner KOIN.
