Teachers often pay for supplies out of their own pockets to bridge the gap between what families can provide and what is needed in class, which can shift the focus off of learning and supporting their students. As a community, we can remove these barriers for our teachers and our students.
By supporting the Together 4 Teachers campaign, you ensure our Metro teachers have an environment stocked with the supplies they need to start the school year.
Together 4 Teachers (T4T) is PENCIL’s annual campaign that aims to get a tote bag filled with high-need supplies into the hands of every classroom teacher in Metro Nashville Public Schools.
Together 4 Teachers has two primary goals:
- celebrate and appreciate teachers
- raise awareness about the LP PENCIL Box—a year-round resource where teachers can shop for free supplies
T4T 2021 is actively seeking participants and the campaign will run until the start of the 2021-2022 school year.
In late July/early August, there will be a series of Pack-a-thon events where hundreds of volunteers will come together in a safe and socially distant way over a couple of days to sort, pack, and deliver supplies to public schools across the district.
This campaign is made possible by community investment in the form of sponsorships, in-kind support, and monetary donations.
