Mission: Treasures for Educators collects quality school supplies from businesses, families, fortunate schools, and civic organizations. Then we donate these resources to under-supplied public schools in the Philadelphia area. Our goal is to equip our educators with the tools they need to create a quality education for their students while saving many of these gently used supplies from being discarded and heading to a landfill prematurely. It's a WIN-WIN!
Results: Over the last 5 years, we have supplied hundreds of teachers with countless truckloads of school supplies, benefiting the children of these schools for years, WITHOUT any cost to them.
Target demographics: urban, under-supplied public school studetns and educators
Direct beneficiaries per year: thousands of students in 100+ public schools in our region
Geographic areas served: Philadelphia region
Programs: supply donation (books, pencils, technology, paper, art supplies, curriculum and more)
TfE has been a huge asset to my school. We are school-wide Title I and TfE has supplied numerous amounts of children's books to my school. We hand out new and used books at least 3 times a year to EVERY CHILD with the idea that our students can keep the book forever and always, OR they can trade with other students when finished reading the book, OR they are encouraged to pass the book along when finished to their classroom library or friends/relatives. Because of TfE, my school is bringing literacy into the homes and into the hands of underprivileged families. TfE is simply the best in making a difference where it is needed most!
