Reaching out about a feel-good story for the holidays about how PaperMate is partnering with the Kids in Need Foundation’s “Supply a Teacher Program” to help fulfill teacher wish lists in the Southwest Florida area! See below for additional details.
· SUPPLY SHORTAGE: While school supply donations help students get the year started, 91% of teachers don’t have the supplies they need to start the second semester of school in January*.
· DONATION: This December, PaperMate will donate $100,000 to under-resourced teacher’s wish lists across the country to help fuel a full semester of active learning. According to the Kid’s In Need Foundation, Florida is one of the top five states needing the most support.
· SOCIAL CALL: How can you help? In the spirit of giving thanks this season, PaperMate is asking consumers to help spread the love and appreciation for teachers nationwide via a simple gesture – a thank you note. Share your thank you note or video on social using the hashtags #ThankstoTeachers and tagging @PaperMate for a chance to be featured on the brand’s Instagram. For those looking to join PaperMate in helping to supply a teacher in their community, they can make a donation at visiting https://www.kinf.org/
