Mark Your Calendars for Our Massive School Giveaway!
UPDATE: Shoplet for Schools is officially LIVE! Nominate your school for this amazing donation here!
When many of the older generations went to grade school, there were plenty of supplies to go around. Remember the teacher’s art bin that was chock full of crayons, scissors, construction paper, pencils and even stickers? What about handouts of the school year’s syllabus? We used to take one and pass them back (aaah memories). Due to dwindling school budgets, these memories are a thing of the past. Things like copy paper and paper towels are creeping into school supplies lists across the country and many teachers are filling in the gaps where the school system is falling short. Parents are also starting to be required to “donate” school supplies to classrooms. Even when in some cases, it’s already a struggle to supply their own children. The lack of support and funding for our future leaders and our educators is a serious and downright shameful problem our country faces.
There is a heavy burden placed on parents and teachers to make ends meet in order to service their classrooms. What used to be basic supplies that were once easily available are now luxuries in the classroom, all due to heavy budget cuts. Tony Ellison, founder and CEO of Shoplet says, “We are seeing many teachers paying out of pocket for supplies for their students. That is why we felt like we have to give back too.”Education is a group effort.- Tony Ellison, Shoplet CEO Click To Tweet
