PEMCO is powering Supply Surge, a community school supply drive running through August 17.

We’re teaming up with nearly 30 neighboring South Lake Union businesses and residents for the Supply Surge – all donations benefit six Seattle-area public middle and high schools, each with a large population of homeless students.

We worked directly with Seattle Public Schools to identify the schools in the district with the highest need, to include:

  • Denny International Middle School
  • Jane Addams Middle School
  • Washington Middle School
  • Franklin High School
  • Ingraham High School
  • South Lake High School

As a community of Seattle businesses and neighbors, our impact is greater together than it is individually. Together, we can help provide students the tools they need to succeed and close the opportunity gap.

We’re excited about the opportunity to partner with our neighbors for good – to make a collective impact, and to do more, for more.

Here’s how you can join us!
