Little Red Schoolhouse

Zonta Coos Bay Area Little Red Schoolhouse

Little Red Schoolhouse
Our Little Red School House project started in 1998 in response to the needs expressed by area schools to provide basic school supplies to low income students.

Our program has grown significantly over the years as need has increased:

  • Given over $200,000 in supplies since 1998
  • Provided supplies to all 6 districts in Coos County
  • Serving an estimated 4,400 children in grades K-8

Our Coos County schools rely on Zonta’s donations to meet a very large portion of the required school supplies needed by students who qualify for the free or reduced lunch program.

The schools are so appreciative of the supplies which have come through Zonta’s Little Red School House project.It would not be possible without the generosity of donors and the community.

If you are a teacher needing supplies please fill out the form here.
