SUCCESS - Student Success Kits

Student Success Kits Assembly

We want to thank everyone involved in successfully packing and delivering 16,000 Student Success Kits to BSD students in need.


  • Thank you to all the 225 volunteers who turned out last week to help with the assembly. Many hands make light work!

  • Thank you to the Beaverton Education Foundation (BEF). In addition to manning the school supply drive, BEF's Equip Campaign raised more than $35,000. The remainder of the funds were provided from the BSD Community Resource Fund. We value your partnership, BEF!

  • Thank you to our faith-based partners who organized school supply drives to benefit our students: Beaverton Foursquare, Bethany Presbyterian, Cedar Mill Bible, Parkside Fellowship, Sunset Presbyterian, United Methodist and Westside A Jesus Church.

  • Thank you to the Chetana Foundation which bought and delivered 20,000 spiral notebooks.

  • Thank you to our business partners. Nike donated 16,000 bags for the kits. T-Mobile contributed $5,000. KGW and Schoolhouse Supplies provided 32,000 pencils. Costco donated 750 backpacks for later distribution.

  • Thank you to our retail partners who provided either discounted merchandise or other support: Bi-Mart, Dollar Tree, Beaverton Fred Meyer, Oriental Trading, Schoolhouse Supplies, Tanasbourne Target and The Markerboard People.


Together, WE are better!
