About Teachers Treasures 

Teachers’ Treasures helps at-risk students get the materials they need to succeed in school by providing teachers with donated educational supplies for use by the students in their classroom.

◦Over half of the students in Marion County cannot afford lunch, much less school supplies.
◦Teachers on average spend $500 – $1000 per year of their own funds to buy supplies for their classroom and students.
◦Today’s economy is causing parent, teacher and school budgets to be reduced.

OUR SOLUTION:
Teachers’ Treasures bridges the gap between the great need and available resources. Many businesses and individuals have a surplus of product/materials and are in need of a positive outlet to dispose of these items.

We provide a unique means to transfer these donated materials to teachers for use in their classrooms. Since being established in 2000, Teachers’ Treasures has distributed over $35 million worth of free school supplies.

THE BASICS:
We operate a retail-like free supply store for teachers, open year-round, with more than 300 items a teacher can use to help capture a child’s interest, creativity and commitment to learning.
