Question: Donations for Teachers

I am looking for free things to give to the teachers as back to school gifts. Does anyone have any information or where I can start? This is my first year. I want to get off to a good start.

If you're looking for donations, I'd start with local businesses -- they're going to be the most motivated to help your school. Many business are willing to donate a gift card. If you call several, you can gather one for each teacher. The most meaningful gift you can give to teachers at the beginning of the year is a way to fulfill their classroom wish list. Teachers often spend $500 or more of their own money on classroom supplies. Gift cards or money for purchasing classroom supplies will be highly appreciated. If your goal is simply showing teachers that they're appreciated, many groups organize a back-to-school luncheon for teachers.
