Mission Statement

Ensure that students and classrooms in Pinellas County have the basic tools for learning by transferring, at no cost, the communityĆ¢ s surplus supplies and merchandise into the hands of teachers and school children in need.

Description

The A Gift For Teaching model offers a simple solution to a complex problem and ultimately serves the community by offering items that might otherwise wind up as waste material to the at-risk students who most need these tools to learn and achieve their potential. A Gift For Teaching of Pinellas operates a free store where teachers from schools with the highest percentages of free/reduced lunch students can shop once-a-month for supplies such as paper, pencils, glue sticks, crayons, etc., the basics. To accomplish this, AGFTP gathers surplus items donated by businesses, groups, and individuals that teachers can give to their students for classroom use. At no cost to them, teachers can select up to a certain number of items during each shopping trip, depending on the items available for distribution on a particular day.
