Product Drives – A school supply drive is an effort to collect school supplies for donations to needy children who will otherwise go to school without the necessary materials. Please ask your organizations, churches, friends or schools you are affiliated with to help our effort. A supply drive helps children and teachers not to worry about having the necessary tools needed for their classrooms and for the students to excel. Teachers purchase many needed supplies out of their own pockets for the children whose families cannot afford them. Your support is appreciated and needed by many!
Donate a Toy/Book – Encourage children you know to clean out their toy chests and book shelves. Toys that are new or slightly used make fantastic incentives for the teacher’s treasure chests and every book a teacher receives enhances her/his classroom and the learning of students. Teaching children how to give at an early age helps instill the value of giving throughout their lives.
Clean Your Cupboards – To keep the products in our store stocked, we accept donations of new and gently used office, school and art supplies, excess inventory, new or slightly damaged merchandise and outdated and tradeshow products. Teachers are extremely creative and can make use of many items that wouldn’t seem fitting for a classroom, such as: clipboards, mailing tubes, wooden sticks, file folders, three ring binders, etc.
