Teachers' Teammates needs volunteers who can pick up donations from various locations (usually in Delaware County) and relay them to the Folcroft Warehouse (777 Henderson Blvd, Bldg. 11, Unit 3).

For a variety of reasons teachers cannot always pick up their completed order in a timely way so we need volunteers to deliver orders to schools in our area (5-20 minutes from warehouse). Help to load and unload your vehicle is always available.

About Teachers' Teammates

Location:

777 Henderson Blvd., Bldg. 11, Unit 3, Folcroft, PA 19032, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to ensure all K-12 teachers and students in Delaware County have the tools they need to succeed in the classroom. We want to demonstrate our encouragement, support and gratitude for the work of our teachers.

Description

Teachers’ Teammates is a nonprofit built by former educators and parents who recognize that teachers must reach deep into their own wallets far too often to buy basic supplies their classrooms need. Our mission is to ensure all K-12 students in Delaware County have the resources they need to thrive in their education. We do this by soliciting, collecting and distributing donated goods from businesses and the community that can be re-purposed in classrooms, and offering teachers the opportunity for free or significantly low-cost supplies.

We seek to help fill the resource gap and provide support throughout the year, with a particular focus on districts where 65 percent or more children receive free or reduced lunch.

Donations made to Teachers’ Teammates serve many purposes: They reduce waste and demonstrate good stewardship of resources while investing in our children. Teachers’ Teammates is proud to bring together many segments of our community - business, local organizations, houses of worship, elders, young people, public servants) to meet the needs of our schools. Since February 2021, we've distributed more than $600,000 in free supplies to 2,200 teachers and their students in 55 schools.
