It takes a team of dedicated volunteers to help operate our teacher shopping programs, and we are always inviting new members to join our family!
Whether you are welcoming guests, prepping the Free Teacher Supply Store, assisting teachers, packing and delivering curbside orders, or assisting with Pencil Boy Express – The Mobile Free Store, volunteers are the heart of A Gift For Teaching.

WHAT OUR VOLUNTEERS SAY
“I have been volunteering with them for more than 2 years. Each week I get to see first hand how much this organization helps our teachers.
Every time we hand off boxes and bags of supplies to the teachers, they always tell us how much this means to them and their students, and they can’t thank us enough.”
“When I first started volunteering, I was happy to see that it wasn’t just about getting teachers basic school supplies. It was also about hygiene and clothes and other necessities to help the students.
All the volunteers here work as a team with the same goal; to help make life a little easier for the teachers.”

Since that one-time event with my employer, I’ve returned to A Gift for Teaching dozens of times to work with them as an individual.”
