Thousands watched. Hundreds called. WE GOT RESULTS!

We are humbled by the generosity of our community and the viewers of WKMG News 6. Together, we got results at our Back-to-School Telethon for local teachers and students during a time when our future leaders need it most.

A special thank you to the generous matching funders, The Joe & Sarah Galloway Foundation, The Bond Foundation, and Addition Financial, for inspiring our community to come together to make a positive difference in public education.

With the help of matching funds, donations received for the Telethon were eligible to be doubled, to provide more than $832,070 worth of essential supplies!

These learning tools will help teachers ensure all their students have the supplies they need to start the school year with success.

But there is still more work to be done.

Our Free Teacher Supply Store is open the entire school year for teachers and more than $65,000 worth of supplies are distributed a day.

You can still help! Consider becoming a member of The Honor Roll to empower teachers and inspire future leaders every month. With your commitment to an automatic recurring $25 monthly gift, three classrooms can continue to have access to essential supplies a year.
