We have always loved the start of the school year. All that excitement, potential, and creativity, those new ideas, revived friendships, inspiring teachers, and much much more. It’s also a time to reflect, and, if possible, give something back to underserved communities and struggling families.

Plum District Portland wants to do our part. We’re donating 10% of every purchase during Back to School Week (August 29 – September 4, 2011) to one of our favorite local nonprofits, Schoolhouse Supplies. This dedicated, amazing organization ensures that Portland-area students and schools receive essential supplies like pencils, paper, backpacks, glue sticks, scissors, markers, crayons, and more – the tools kids need to excel in the classroom.

Helping Portland school children is an investment in our collective futures, and we here at Plum District see this as part of our mission. Join us and enjoy a fabulous deal while knowing you also did a fabulous deed!

The Back to School week offers are to some of our favorite local businesses: Pump it Up, the Portland Timbers, Mamas & Papas, Opaline Spa, and Westside Gymnastics.

Help us support our local schools and schoolchildren.
