2016 Back to school drive

Please help a child in need by donating school supplies. Your donation will help our students and teachers get what they need to have a successful year.

There are three opportunities to help with our supply drive. You can give supplies that you purchase, donate funds to help classrooms in need, or buy supplies through our online store provided by Dixon Ticonderoga.

Project Teacher is a grass-roots initiative formed on a simple idea: teachers need tools to teach, and students need supplies to learn.  Knowing first-hand what it takes to open a classroom for students and then to maintain throughout the course of the school year, we want to do whatever we can possible to equip teachers to succeed.

Project Teacher supports public education in the Greater Wichita area by giving students and teachers free classroom supplies. We operate the only volunteer-run Free Store for Teachers in Kansas, which is stocked with supplies donated by the community.

We believe that every child deserves school supplies and has the right to a quality education and by offering this service to our teachers, we will be able to assist them in effectively teaching their class. With supply drives and generous contributions of gently used supplies from  businesses in South-Central Kansas, Project Teacher will be a leading resource for teachers in our community.
