Imagine trying to write without a pencil, color without a crayon, or carry school books without a backpack. For nearly 180,000 students in Central Florida, this is a reality every day. An award-winning nonprofit organization, A Gift For Teaching works to fill in this gap by collecting surplus supplies from local businesses and individuals and then distributes them to students in need through the Free Store for teachers. Volunteer opportunities are available for everything from store clerks, retail merchandisers, and shopping assistants to event planners and office assistants. Since 1998, A Gift For Teaching has distributed more than $70 million worth of learning tools to ensure equal education for all children.
Mission: A Gift For Teaching's vision is to ensure every child has the basic learning tools and experiences they deserve to succeed in school and life.
