Teachers should never have to pay for school supplies, craft projects and books from their own pockets. But, that’s exactly what many caring teachers do every single day!
At Success Won’t Wait, we want to help support these teachers and their students. So this week, we once again partnered with Treasures for Teachers, the Pennsylvania-based not-for-profit organization whose mission is to equip classrooms in under-supplied schools. Success Won’t Wait donated over 700 K-12th grade books to the group and our project total now stands at a whopping 4,500+ books!
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.
- To see the items available, “Like” TFT on Facebook.
- 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.
