School Supply Drive, July 27-August 15

Remember the thrill of shopping for school supplies? The smell of brand-new crayons. Beautiful sharpened pencils with erasers intact. Brightly colored folders, full of promise for happy learning ahead.

With school starting in a few short weeks and the pandemic risk to volunteers and shoppers still high, Teachers Warehouse is conducting an online drive for school supplies for teachers to share with needy children in their classrooms. Individuals can help support teachers in our community by purchasing items from the Teachers Warehouse “wish list.”

Choose among six ways to help:

  • Order online from our Amazon wish list. Quantity can be changed in the Cart. Choose the Gift Registry Address Teachers Warehouse. Items will be shipped directly to Teachers Warehouse.
  • Order online from ICC. Username: twdonor. Password: donor1234. Click on Favorites.
  • Make an online cash donation: Use the “Donate” button on this page below.

If you would rather purchase school supplies in town, you can:

  • Shop at Staples and drop your purchase in the Teachers Warehouse bin from July 27-August 15
  • Shop at College Mall Krogers for school supplies on August 1 or 8 and drop your purchase in the Teachers Warehouse bin.
  • Buy school supplies and deliver in person to 524 N. Fairview, Bloomington. Donations are always accepted on Saturdays, 9:30 am - 12:30 pm.

Thank you for supporting Teachers Warehouse!

No Need to Sign Up To Shop

After a busy first two weeks, with the total number of shoppers well within our pandemic limits, we are eliminating the requirement to make an appointment. Come when you can, and don't forget your mask!

Donations

Donors should wear masks and practice social distancing when dropping off items.  TW accepts new or gently-used classroom supplies, materials, or furnishings. Remember:  If you wouldn’t give it to your children or grandchildren, please don’t give it to Teachers Warehouse.”
