Mission Statement

Teachers' Treasures helps at-risk children get the materials they need to succeed in school by providing teachers with donated educational supplies for use by the students in their classroom.

Description

Every day at public, private and parochial schools located throughout Indianapolis, children of all ages attend class without the most basic supplies they need to get a good education. Dedicated teachers are often willing to pay for these much needed supplies out oftheir own pockets to make sure the kids in their classrooms have the necessary tools to learn.

Teachers' Treasures, in partnership with local businesses, charitable foundations, neighborhood organizations and individual contributors, helps fill this need by operating a volunteer based "Free Store for Teachers." Donated educational supplies and other materials are distributed via this unique conduit to teachers for the benefit of their students.

Teachers' Treasures offers a variety of group volunteer activities that can be tailored to your group or organization. Please contact Judy Kiemeyer at(317) 264-1758 or judy@teacherstreasures.org for more information on getting your group involved.

For every 12 hours worked, our volunteers can earn extra "shopping trips" for an eligible teacher or school of their choice. What a great way to say "Thank you!" to the teachers in your life!

Would you recommend Teachers' Treasures?

by TERRY F. from FAIRLAND, IN (2010-08-24 10:32:54.0)
I HAVE BEEN VOLUNTEERING WEEKLY AT TEACHER'S TREASURES FOR ABOUT 18 MONTHS. IT IS WONDERFUL TO SEE THE TEACHER'S SO EXCITED ABOUT BEING ABLE TO SUPPLY THEIR CLASSROOMS WITH MUCH NEEDED MATERIALS. JUDY AND THE STAFF AND TEACHER'S TREASURES ARE ALWAYS ANXIOUS TO WORK AROUND WHATEVER SCHEDULE A PERSON CAN VOLUNTEER, AND I ALWAYS FEEL SO APPRECIATED AT THE STORE. ALTHOUGH IT IS AN INNER-CITY NEIGHBORHOOD, THE STORE AND PARKING LOT ARE WELL LIT AND FEEL SAFE WHEN DARKNESS FALLS SO EARLY IN THE WINTER MONTHS. "SHOPPING HOURS" ARE GENERALLY 3-6PM ON MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY, BUT VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED ALL THROUGHOUT THE DAY FOR RE-STOCKING SHELVES,BUNDELING, AND THOSE WITH CREATIVE HANDS CAN SPEND HOURS CREATING BOOKMARKS AND JOURNALS. THE SHOPPING HOURS CAN BE HECTIC, BUT ARE FUN AND REWARDING. NO TEACHING EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED! HOPE TO MEET YOU AT TEACHER'S TREASURES SOON :)
