Project TEACH receives generous donations from businesses, organizations, agencies, service clubs and individuals. New items can be donated to shelter agencies and/or the person (liaison) designated by your school district.

There are numerous examples of successful methods to volunteer time and collect donated resources to help children, which include:

  • Organization/club members are requested to bring an item (school supplies, personal care items or backpacks filled with school supplies) to their next luncheon, meeting or event
  • Businesses provide the time for employees to fulfill the wish lists of children for holiday gifts or to volunteer at a shelter or service agency
  • Service clubs use fund raising resources to purchase school supplies, including children’s books, calculators and flash cards
  • Scout leaders encourage troops or its members to choose service projects, which result in a donation of a specific item, such as new children’s socks
  • Churches or religious organizations are asked by its members to sponsor the collection of specific donated items, such as handmade quilts
