All kids deserve to reach their full potential — and teachers are instrumental in our children’s success. For 20 years, 10 cents at a time, Box Tops for Education has given nearly $1 billion to teachers and schools nationwide to help provide the supplies, technologies and experiences students need to thrive. In light of recent events across the country, addressing inequity within our education system is more important than ever. While there is no perfect solution, Box Tops is committed to help.
This year, we’re partnering with SupplyATeacher.org, a program of Kids in Need Foundation, to recognize and reward underfunded teachers and schools across the nation. Each week between now and the end of the year, Box Tops will share stories from special teachers and award them supply boxes for their classrooms plus $1,000 in Bonus Box Tops to fund technology, cleaning supplies or other needs.
Without a doubt, this year is unlike any other. At a time when classrooms and school days look very different, many of these challenges are falling on teachers’ shoulders. These hometown heroes deserve a shoutout. If you know a teacher or school who is going above and beyond right now, share their story with #GiveExtraCredit for a chance for them to be featured on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
