Announcing Teacher Supply Boxes!

Does your classroom desperately need free school supplies?  Have the needs of your students fallen through the cracks?   Read on, we can help!

Our new Teacher Supply Boxes program focuses on our core mission of providing essential school supplies to the classrooms of children most in need.  Successful applicants will receive TWO large boxes containing a predetermined assortment of essential items, including pencils, scissors, paper, and notebooks.  Check out the list of supplies here.

How do I apply?  It’s simple!

  • Do 70% or more of the children at your school receive free or reduced-price lunches?
  • Can you describe to us in 750 words or less how our supplies will positively impact your classroom?

If so, please submit our Teacher Supply Boxes Application. The submission period will begin on July 13 and end on August 14. We will notify applicants and ship boxes in October. Unfortunately, because our supplies are limited, we do not guarantee that all qualifying applicants will receive supplies.

A printable, downloadable flier on the Teacher Supply Boxes program is available here. Please help us spread the word!

This year we are grateful to our partners who are generously sponsoring this program: Jo-Ann Stores, Inc., ArtSkills, American College of Education, and Georgia-Pacific.

If you have questions, please email Pete Tack, Development Director.

When families struggle financially, school supplies just can't be a priority. In 2016, we directly supported 5.4 million kids with new supplies.
