Story

The Gr8 Paper Push might look a little different, but the mission stays the same. With the CDC's recommendation to limit shared supplies in a classroom our need has grown.





Together let's lessen this financial burden on teachers and families.


The Need

Every day at public, private, charter, and parochial schools located throughout Marion County, children of all ages attend class without the most basic supplies they need to get a good education. Dedicated teachers are often willing to pay for these much needed supplies out of their own pockets to make sure the kids in their classrooms have the necessary tools to learn.  On average, teachers spend $800-$1200 a year on school supplies for their students.


Our Answer

Teachers’ Treasures, in partnership with local businesses, charitable foundations, neighborhood organizations and individual contributors, helps fill this need by operating a volunteer-based “Store for Teachers.”  Donated educational supplies and other materials are distributed via this unique conduit to teachers for the benefit of their students. We serve teachers from any school (public, private, charter, or parochial) in Marion County and the immediately surrounding school districts with 60% of more of the student population on the free or reduced lunch programs are eligible.

Every teacher deserves money for her classroom. Every child deserves to start school with the needed necessities. Who doesn't love a new box of crayons???
