Tis the season for giving! Teachers' Treasures

Wednesday, November 26, 2014


What items do you need to be successful at your job?


A computer. A phone. Maybe a notebook or planter.  No matter what tools you need, there's a good chance you have easy access to them, making it easy to achieve success.  But for thousands of Marion County students, obtaining the basic tools for success is a struggle--if not impossible--for their families.


That's where Teachers' Treasurescomes into play.  For almost fifteen years their doors have been open with the mission of helping teachers help kids.  Teachers from eligible Marion county schools-- those with a free or reduced lunch rate of at least 40%--can pay a small yearly fee to get access to hundreds of dollars of supplies each month for FREE.  Their retail-like store is filled with all of the staples, pencils, papers, crayons, scissors, art supplies for budding Picassos, or filing cabinets for the organized teacher.



But Teachers' Treasures can't do it alone!  They rely on support from the community to keep the doors open and the store running smoothly.  As they prepare to celebrate their 15th anniversary in 2015, they're kicking off the #15for15campaign.  Every $15 donation to Teachers' Treasures means getting $225 of supplies into classroom.  Where else can you stretch your to 15x value?


This giving season, consider making a small donation with a BIG impact on a child's future.   Click hereto make a one-time or recurring gift.
