Earlier this week, for #GivingTuesday, A Gift For Teaching and JDSA created a video. We did it because it’s all about the kids…all about the teachers….and all about supplies.
#GivingTuesday may be over, but AGFT’s work continues.
Have you ever wanted just five minutes of free shopping? Five whole uninterrupted minutes to pick out anything you wanted? Next Wednesday, A Gift For Teaching (AGFT) is making that wish come true for three local students in need. Three students who were nominated by their teachers, and who, despite difficult circumstances and hardships, demonstrate superior student qualities, habits and grades.
“We serve more than 180,000 students in need in our community and that number continues to rise each year,” says Jane Thompson, president of AGFT. “Along with the rising number of students living at or below the poverty line, homelessness among these students is rising as well. We are proud to be part of such a wonderful group of community members who support these students. Although teachers are our usual shoppers during the year, this student shopping spree is an opportunity for us to celebrate their accomplishments, and have a little fun doing it!”
