Supporting Our Schools 2021: How To Donate To Support Local Teachers or Submit a Project To Be Funded

Together let’s help our teachers and students get the materials they need!

Every year, teachers in our community face the challenge of getting the materials they need for their students to succeed. 

NBC Connecticut and Telemundo Connecticut are once again proud to partner with DonorsChoose for this year’s Supporting Our Schools campaign. We will be spotlighting Connecticut teachers who have requested classroom and learning materials at DonorsChoose.org.

DonorsChoose is a platform where teachers can submit project requests for the opportunity to have them funded by the community. Requests can include school supplies, food, hygiene essentials or any items selected by teachers to help meet their students’ needs.

Tune in to NBC Connecticut News every Tuesday at 4:45 p.m. as we feature new projects and inspiring teachers each week. You can also follow our efforts on NBC Connecticut’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages.
