Every year, teachers spend an average of $1,000
of their own money on classroom supplies.
That's over $4 billion annually. The number
is surprising, the reality is unacceptable.
OfficeMax® joined with AdoptAClassroom.org to create
A Day Made Better: A one-day event that awards more
than 1,000 teachers with $1,000 in school supplies, and
brings attention to the issue of teacher-funded classrooms.
Since its inception, we’ve surprised more than 6,700 teachers
and donated $8.85 million in supplies to classrooms
across the country.
October 1, 2013 will mark the seventh anniversary of
this event, and once again we will surprise more than 1,000
teachers with a new chair, loads of classrooms supplies and
the recognition they so richly deserve.
