How to help teachers with supplies for the school year

Every year teachers spend thousands of dollars out of their own pocket on supplies for their students.

In Forsyth County, the Educator Warehouse helps teachers by giving them lots of stuff for their classroom.

Karel Chandler gave FOX8 the details.

The Educator Warehouse, a collaboration of Forsyth Education Partnership and Winston-Salem Forsyth County Council of PTAs, is a facility where teachers can ‘shop’ among thousands of new and gently-used donated items for use in their classrooms.

Donations come from local businesses, organizations, and individuals.

Located in a pod behind Diggs-Latham Elementary School, the Educators’ Warehouse is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-5:30 p.m. on school days and the first and third Saturdays of each month from 9-11 a.m. from late August to mid-May.

Teachers sign up online to visit the Warehouse on a specific day.

All classroom teachers are allowed four visits per school-year (once per quarter) and can shop for a designated amount of supplies during each visit.

For more information about how to donate, visit their website.

    This is kind of misleading. The teachers need most of the supplies because the parents don’t buy them for their children to use so you’re really donating the supplies for the parents who either cannot afford them or are too sorry to provide their children with what they need. My parents got a list of supplies from the teachers when i was growing up and they bought us what we needed from glue to tissue.

    “Every year teachers spend thousands of dollars out of their own pocket on supplies for their students”. But yet we pay school taxes on every piece of property we own and have the so called Education Lottery. Do you need to wonder why teachers want to get out of North Carolina? This is truly a sad state of affairs.
