Teacher’s Fund “Back-to-School” Supplies Drive Kicks Off!

By the Teacher’s Fund

The Teacher’s Fund has kicked off its 2022 Back-to-School Supplies Drive with the goal of ensuring students have all they need to thrive throughout the upcoming school year. 

Twenty years ago, the owners of Village Properties launched the Teacher’s Fund as a way of helping make school learnings even richer. Since then, the Teacher’s Fund has raised over $1.9 million for the communities’ schools and hopes to pass the $2-million-dollar mark this 20th year through the Supplies Drive. The drive runs from Sept. 1 – Oct. 13 and offers the community the ability to sponsor teachers’ classroom requests. 

“The community has been so giving over the years. We know they’ll step up for our hard-working teachers who play such important roles in the lives of our children,” said Village Properties Realtor Brianna Johnson, who came up with the idea of the supplies drive in 2019. 

Teachers have set up wish lists for art supplies, noise-canceling headphones, cozy rugs, scientific calculators, electronics, storage solutions, learning toys and manipulatives, social-emotional book, and more. “Buy” a specific item or just give a general donation. 

Want to be a sponsor? You’ll get social media mentions, entries for the chance to win one of numerous prizes and other recognition. 

The nonprofit fund is marking its 20th anniversary with an ambitious goal of raising $75,000 during the drive, which would help to exceed $2 million donated in 20 years. 

“I have been so touched by the generosity of parents, friends, business owners and other community members in supporting our classrooms,” Johnson said. “I have no doubt we can reach this goal.”
