Did you know that millions of teachers across the country are shelling out their own hard-earned cash to pay for books, pens, and other basic supplies that schools have provided in the past? It’s true.
The Education Market Association says that virtually all teachers wind up paying something out of pocket for school supplies. And, it’s not chump change, either. On average, most teachers spent nearly $500 in 2015. And, one in 10 in cash-strapped districts spent $1,000 or more.
But, there’s a better way!
From pencils, to office furniture, to craft supplies, Treasures for Educators supplies teachers in underfunded schools with everything their classrooms need to succeed. And, Success Won’t Wait was happy to support that mission with a donation of over 1,500 K-12 children’s books today!
This donation pushes the Success Won’t Wait total to over 20,000 books donated to this program alone. And, we are so happy to help this great organization!
If you are not familiar with TFE, it is the Pennsylvania-based not-for-profit organization whose mission is to equip classrooms in under-supplied schools in Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey… FREE.
Annually, TFE donates to over 1,000 preschool, elementary, middle and high school teachers in publicly funded educational schools. To learn more about this amazing program for educators, visit the Treasures for Educators website.
