Adopt a Class, Adopt a Teacher

Photo-02Every year we hear the stories of teachers in our community struggling to keep supplies in the classroom by using their OWN money to purchase items for their students. Each year, we support one of our family members who is a teacher through her online fundraising link. Since we have a blog now, we decided to share the names and addresses of teachers throughout New York city who could use support of others. So – if you are reading this blog and want to help – PLEASE DO. Let’s do some social good together. In a country as prosperous as ours, there should not be a struggle for children to have PENS AND PENCILS!

Pick, a teacher, pick a class, pick a school and support. And don’t hoard the knowledge – share this blog, share this list and let us know when you’ve completed your Social Good in the comments below.

These teachers thank you in advance!

    Thank you so much for spreading the word. I often wonder if people realize the amount of money teachers spend and why. Those that are passionate about this profession will go to any length to make things happen, which easily tranlates to ongoing out of pocket expenses. These expenses can range from the cost of pencils, notebooks, glue, crayons, scissors, paper, ink, to trips to supplemental instructional materials, and it goes on and on and on…sometimes all year long. I am grateful to and for you, as well as countless others who continue to help our babies have the tools they need to excel. Thank you for caring and sharing.

    I’ve completed the challenge. One thing I remember being a teacher is never having enough copy paper. I’m planning to periodically drop off a box of paper to my neighborhood school.
