Sherry Caldwell's Story

For the last 5 years, I have been blessed to play a part in supporting the amazing organization, Teachers Treasures. Now more than ever, they need our help! As our students return to the classrooms this year, sharing supplies will be obsolete. Many in our community are still either unemployed or their income has been impacted drastically by COVID-19. Please join me in supporting our teachers and students as they face unprecedented times. I appreciate each and every one of you that have donated over the last few years. You are the ones who make this possible!

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.
