Our schools and teaching staff have worked hard over the past year to provide an education to our children despite all the chaos happening around us.  Teachers often pay out of their own pocket for supplies to finish outfitting their classrooms or to prepare for special projects.  Treasures 4 Teachers gathers new and slightly used supplies from across the valley to help teachers have the resources they need to excel.  Anyone who works closely with students can have access to a wide selection of materials, resources and training that will enhance and expand the learning process. T4T is a donation-based operation. 

T4T is looking for clean, safe and interesting donations that will support our local teachers and students while at the same time preserving our environment.  Please review the list below.
