Adopt-a-Classroom through Office Depot Today

Did you know that the majority of classrooms in this country contain supplies purchased by the teacher of that classroom? Teachers don't have big enough budgets to get all of the materials they need to teach our children. It just doesn't happen so they spend their own money. THIS is not ok!

Teachers spend more and more money every year out of their own pocket, especially in underfunded areas. In fact, many teachers are doing innovative things in the classroom and you can help them do more by donating.

ABOUT ADOPT-A-CLASSROOM

Adopt-A-Classroom is a nonprofit organization that helps connect donors with teachers to enhance the learning environment for students. So now Office Depot and Adopt-A-Classroom have partnered to raise awareness about teachers, and all that they do in the lives of their students. Teachers are the most important person in your child's life outside of their family and we need to do more to help them.

See the video below and then you can even donate to that teacher or pick a teacher in your local community to help out. Please consider helping out in your community. This would allow teachers to keep more of their income.
