Free Teacher Supplies Store Expands, Wants Your help

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (August 13, 2014) — A store on the near east side devoting its efforts to putting more supplies in teachers’ classrooms hopes to expand with the help of the community.

Teachers Treasures on 10th Street gives teachers in Marion County a way to get virtually free supplies. For a $25 fee per year – paid for by many school districts – teachers can fill a cart full of supplies once a month.

“The out-of-pocket expense for teachers runs between $500 and $1,000 dollars on average,” Executive Director Margaret Sheehan said.

The store got a boost from Target on Wednesday, as dozens of volunteers spent their time stocking shelves. The company already donated 120,000 notebooks and $5,000 to the store.

“I can’t even tell you how many hours they just saved us today,” Sheehan said.

They’re hoping you will help, too.

The store will collect school supplies at this weekend’s first home Colts game. They’re requesting 24-count crayon packages, construction paper, glue sticks, Kleenex and hand sanitizer. You can drop them off before the game. More information is at the Teachers Treasures page here.
