The Teacher’s Desk is designed to be a place of encouragement for teachers, as well as a resource center for school supplies for students in need.
Who can shop?
Certified full-time teachers having onsite classroom/office space within the schools where at least 70% of the students participate in the Federal Free or Reduced School Lunch Program are welcome to shop free at The Teacher’s Desk.
What are we shopping for?
Basic school supplies, books and items every classroom can use. Each teacher receives on average $1,000 in free supplies for their classroom.
When can we shop?
Once your school is approved educators can reserve a date to shop on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 2:30-5:00 PM and on Saturdays from 9:00 AM-Noon.
What if our school is not yet participating?
If you are a PK – 12th grade school located in Western New York and have 70% or more of your students participating in the Federal Free or Reduced School Lunch Program and you have not submitted an application to shop at The Teacher’s Desk, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
