Educators Material Drive Recap

We were delighted to offer our second material give-away to Austin area educators in October. With the help of generous individual and institutional donors and dozens of dedicated volunteers, we were proud to provide free supplies to classroom teachers, early-childhood educators, home-school teachers and families, after-school support providers, and others in the community. Some critical stats:

  • Teachers representing over 4400 students attended the event.
  • We diverted over two tons of material from the landfill.
  • We gave away 75 pre-packed educational activity kits and featured 2 more model hands-on lessons that could be produced with some of the materials we were giving away.

We all got a little nervous when rainfall in the area topped six inches the night before, but it didn’t dampen our enthusiasm for the event or the willingness of educators to come out for it! Thanks to everyone who participated. We’re looking forward to finding more ways to serve our Austin educator community in the future.
