Tools4Schools is a program by WakeEd Partnership that addresses the issue of teachers in North Carolina spending significant amounts of their own money on school supplies for their students. The program offers free classroom supplies to around 11,000 teachers in North Carolina’s largest school district, ensuring that all students in the Wake County Public School System have the necessary supplies for learning. Educators and certified staff from Wake County Public Schools can sign up for designated shopping slots to acquire 100 points to spend on new and gently used classroom supplies each quarter. The program relies on community partners, donors, and corporate sponsors for support and encourages donations to stock the shelves with supplies for educators and students.
We have set up a donation box at our offices, at 1752 Heritage Drive Suite 101, Wake Forest NC. You’re welcome to visit and contribute any item or items you’d like to donate from now until September 15, 2023.
