We offer a number of opportunities for sponsorships, team building, and group volunteering.
Ways to Help
Volunteer as a Group
Some things are just better together! Is your office or department looking for its next service day or a fun team-building experience? Look no farther than A Gift For Teaching. We can host up to 25 people!
Is your office spring cleaning? Did your business move, have a misprint, or change its logo? Do you have extra display and promotional products from a tradeshow, conference, or event? Contact us for an easy and environmentally friendly way to repurpose these items into creative learning materials for local teachers and their classrooms!
We welcome donations of office supplies, children’s reading books, games, toys, and hygiene items, as well as new, never worn clothing from manufacturers and retailers looking to unload surplus inventory. We also work with many Orange County convention centers and hotels to pick up surplus materials to help reduce shipping costs for traveling vendors.
Funds and supplies raised through A Gift For Teaching’s Ready For Back-to-School initiatives provide one-third of the product distributed each year! Impact sponsors will help ensure our store shelves are stocked and ready for the new school year.
Sponsors have the opportunity to participate in The Great Big Backpack Build® in June, join Central Florida’s LARGEST supply drive with a virtual and/or physical drive from July through August, or dedicate matching funds for the Back-to-School Telethon broadcasted live on WKMG News 6 in August.
As A Gift For Teaching’s most adaptable and innovative supply distribution programs, our Pencil Boy Programs ensure hard working teachers can access supplies for their deserving students in the most convenient ways possible. Foundation and corporate support for Pencil Boy Curbside make it possible for teachers to order supplies online for curbside pick-up and also keep our Pencil Boy Express — The Mobile Free Store on the road visiting schools for easy teacher shopping.
By funding these programs directly, your team can even have a chance to volunteer and personally interact with teachers.
Looking for a team building project for your group AND a way to give back? Check out our Kits For Kids! It will turn your next corporate or group gathering into a high-impact, high-energy event that makes a huge difference.
You provide the location, a budget, and a group of helping hands. A Gift For Teaching supplies the materials, logistical planning, and staffing needed to make your project a positive and purposeful experience for everyone.
Is your company or employee resource group planning an event to give back to the community? It’s a great way to recognize the holidays or launch the opening of a new office. A Gift For Teaching would love to be your charity of choice!
