At the Y, we believe in working toward a better community for us all. This back-to-school season, we want to ensure that teachers and classrooms are prepared to help kids feel confident in the classroom and prepared to learn. We’re hosting a school supply drive to donate back to local classrooms. As a part of our Y community, consider buying an extra item from this list to help the Y Stuff the Bus and support local classrooms!
In the 2019-2020 schoolyear, the average teacher spent $745 out-of-pocket to provide supplies for their students and classrooms.* We asked local teachers their biggest needs, and we’ll be donating these items back to their classrooms.
Biggest Classroom Needs (according to teachers):
- Clorox Wipes
- Expo Dry Erase Markers
- Glue Sticks
- Computer Paper
- Post-It Notes
- Ticonderoga Pencils (standard, non-mechanical, wooden #2 pencils)
