Help Your Local Teacher

by TaxMama on January 14, 2009


I’d like to offer you a tip on how people can do something nice for their local school during touch economic times. Through Adopt-A-Classroom, the public and businesses can literally “adopt” a teacher of their choice and donate funds where 100% goes directly to the teacher. Donors receive an impact report exposing exactly what was purchased as well as a thank you note from the teacher. It’s a great way to help teachers who spend on average $1200 out-of-pocket each year to fund their classrooms due to budget shortfalls. For more, visit www.AdoptAClassroom.com.

I represent OfficeMax that has declared education its companywide cause and is a corporate partner of Adopt-A-Classroom. Together, they recently launched a national cause initiative called “A Day Made Better” where 1300 teachers nationwide were surprised in their classrooms with over $1000 worth of classroom supplies ($1.3M in sum). Teachers were selected by their principal for taking extraordinary measures to make ends meet despite school budget cuts. Adopt-A-Classroom identified needy schools for financial and Title 1 status. OfficeMax donated a sum of $1.3 million and thousands of associate volunteer hours. For more, visit www.ADayMadeBetter.com.

I am having trouble finding the correct site for school to sign up for your organization so they can be the school of our choice for A Day Made Better in October 2010.
