Help with Back to School supplies

Back to School

Back to School – three words that strike fear into the hearts and minds of children around the country.  With decreased school budgets the supply list is what scares parents.  These lists now include your traditional supplies plus things like copy paper, zip-lock bags, tissues, hand sanitizer, tape, dry erase markers and even crackers.

This can be overwhelming for any family but for the families we serve at Dinner & A Movie it is simply impossible for them to provide all these items for their children.  We want to make sure that all the school aged children at D&M to start off their school year on the right foot.  Help us make sure that they head to their first day of school with a backpack filled with the supplies the other kids will have and their head held high.

Your donations can make this possible.

$10 will provide a back pack for a preschooler for head start

$25 will provide supplies for an elementary aged student

$45 will provide supplies and a backpack for an elementary aged student

$35 will provide supplies for a middle or high school student

$55 will provide supplies and a backpack for a middle or high school student

Donations can be made at or mailed to Dinner & A Movie PO Box 28237 Portland, OR 97228.  Contact Jen Lawrence (503-734-9299 or  contact us here) with questions.
