Teacher Supply Collection Drive

TAA News & Updates,

Many teachers use their own money to purchase their classroom supplies and are not reimbursed. Help local teachers stock their classrooms by donating supplies!

What do I do?

Collect new, unused school supplies and bring your donations to our After Work Networking event on June 9, 2020.

Market the collection drive to your coworkers and residents to try and collect more supplies. Consider creating a competition between your sister properties.

Who is benefitting?

TAA's PR Committee is coordinating donating our collected supplies to Crayons2Calculators. Crayons2Calculators (C2C) serves the educational and creative needs of students in Durham Public Schools by providing free school supplies to classroom teachers. Teachers “shop” at the warehouse store C2C with the support of individuals, corporations, and grants. The warehouse store is open to all Durham Public School teachers on a regular rotation.
