In 2015, we are proud to once again partner with Treasures for Teachers, the Pennsylvania-based not-for-profit organization whose mission is to equip classrooms in under-supplied schools in order to enhance student learning. Today, Success Won’t Wait donated over 500 K-8th grade books to the group!

Due to extreme budget cutbacks, supplies are often very limited in some schools, which requires that teachers either purchase essential supplies or have students go without. But, since 2013, Treasures for Teachers has provided truckloads of free donations of all kinds – from craft supplies, to office supplies, to books — to dozens of teachers in need in southeastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.

If you are a teacher in need, how does Treasures for Teachers work?

  • At this time TFT donates to preschool, elementary, middle and high school teachers in publicly funded educational settings: public schools, charter schools and HeadStart.
  • If TFT is delivering off of your school campus, teachers must be present at drop‐off and will be asked to show a school identification badge or paystub. Sorry, no exceptions.
  • TFT will be happy to drive the donations to your school or a public meeting location within an hour from Garnet Valley, PA. Please Google this location before reserving an item. If you are outside of this range, understand that you can meet TFT at our 1 hour mark.
  • Each donation lot is distributed on a first come, first served basis. If you are interested in a lot, post your name and school in the comment section on the TFT Facebook page under the photo and message TFT with your contact info. The teacher who replies to the listing first will be contacted. If this teacher doesn’t send a message to TFT within 24 hours to arrange a drop‐off, the next person on the list will be contacted and so on.
  • Because demand is high, each teacher can reserve 1 lot per month.
