About the Together 4 Teachers Campaign
Support our public schools as they begin the 2020-2021 school year! Join PENCIL by helping us appreciate EVERY teacher on July 31.
Earlier this year, The Tennessean reported that Metro Nashville Public School (MNPS) teachers spend $410 of their own money on school supplies. In a district where nearly half of all families are economically disadvantaged, the need is great for our students' classrooms.
With the support of people like YOU and your organization, PENCIL will gather volunteers and investment for our inaugural teacher awareness and supply delivery event, which coincides with an MNPS professional development day.
On July 31, we'll come together as a community to deliver up to 6,500 teacher supply bags ensuring that all teachers:
1) Feel celebrated and appreciated as they build out their classrooms for the year
2) Know about our LP PENCIL Box-a FREE teacher supply store, open year-round
Become part of the solution with PENCIL in making Together 4 Teachers an unforgettable show of community love and resources!
