WakeEd Partnership Launches Tools4Schools Annual School Supply Drive

The Tools4Schools annual community wide school supply drive, organized by the WakeEd Partnership, kicked off on Tuesday morning at Staples on Wake Forest Road in Raleigh. The goal of the initiative is to help teachers stock their classrooms at no cost to them, alleviating the financial burden many educators face.

For the past two years, this initiative has supported a supply store for teachers, distributing $1 million worth of donated school supplies. The president of WakeEd Partnership highlighted the importance of this drive, noting that many teachers were spending up to $900 out of their own pockets on classroom supplies.

Thanks to the generosity of the community, teachers can now visit the supply store once every quarter to restock on essential items. This initiative aims to reduce the financial strain on teachers and support them in their important work in the classroom.

Staples stores in Wake County are accepting donations for the drive, and they are also offering a 20% in-store discount to Wake County teachers until September 14. This collaborative effort between WakeEd Partnership, Staples, and the community demonstrates the power of coming together to support educators and students.
