The first day of school may be weeks away, but right now students and teachers are struggling to prepare. On average, teachers spend more than $450 a year out of their own pockets to stock their classrooms with necessary supplies. Many school children and families in Connecticut start the school year at a disadvantage, without the common items needed to learn.
NBC Connecticut and Telemundo Connecticut are proud to present the 2018 Supporting Our Schools drive. This is your opportunity to make a difference for children and classrooms from kindergarten through high school.
All month long, you can donate directly by going to donorschoose.org/nbcct. On the site, you can view the hundreds of projects created by local teachers. YOU choose the project, YOU make a difference. Learn more about the classrooms and students you’ll be impacting with your donation. You can give any amount to the project of your choice. You can choose to support a project in your town, or help fund a project that resonates with you. Once a project is completely funded, the teacher receives those supplies – it’s that easy!
If you are a teacher, feel free to create your own project by visiting donorschoose.org/teachers
