Every year we partner with Red Canoe Credit Union to collect school supplies for all 33 schools in the Puyallup School District.
Drive Dates: July 26-August 13
Hybrid Model This Year
This year, Red Canoe will not only be matching school supply donations dollar per pound, but they will also be matching donations made online to Fill the Canoe. Both school supply and financial donations will be used to supply local students with the necessary school supplies for this year.
