Information for Teachers & Donors

Teacher Supply Warehouse, Version 2020!

We are excited to announce that the Teacher Supply Warehouse has re-opened!

As always, our goal is to provide high-demand, every day classroom supplies to Guilford County Schools (GCS) educators as students are welcomed back into school buildings. Like everyone else, we have had to re-think how we operate due to COVID. After much planning, we are happy to announce the Teacher Supply Warehouse – v.2020!

NEW - How It Works

TSW Basic  (Coming soon!)

  • Supplies: The basics like paper, pencils, glue sticks, dry erase markers, etc.
  • Who can order: GCS school principals or their designee (school treasurer, AP, lead teacher, etc.)
  • How to order: Principals will receive an email with an order form. Each school will be given a set amount of purchase points based on the number of teachers in their specific school. Centralized orders via school principals allows us to safely and quickly get a maximum number of supplies into schools. Eventually, the TSW will transition back to offering these supplies directly to teachers. We encourage principals to get input from teachers about what they need before placing their order!

 

TSW Extra (Opening 11/17)

  • Supplies: A wide variety of new and gently-used items, including office supplies, copy and craft paper, desk organizers, plastic bins, art supplies, presentation boards,  books and much more!  We recently received nearly 20  pallets of various NEW office supplies from Staples that will be available. We also have donated items from Joann Fabrics & Crafts and individually wrapped snacks from Backpack Beginnings.
  • Who can shop: GCS educators in-person.  Currently, first priority goes to educators who are working in-person with students. Sign up here.
  • How to shop: Sign up for a shopping time by clicking here. Please respect your assigned time to allow us to maintain safe numbers. Park in the back of our building and enter in the back area of the Warehouse. There are few in any limits on the amount of items that teachers can take and you never know what you will find! Masks will be required for all shoppers.  Only the shopping teacher is allowed in the Warehouse. Children or others must wait in the car.

Community Members –
You Can Help:

  1. Volunteer at the Warehouse – Sign up here:  We need to your help – putting together school orders, checking teachers in when they come to shop and stocking the shelves. We are following COVID safety recommendations, so masks are required and we are limiting the number of people in the Warehouse at any given time.
  2. GEA’s Virtual Supply Drive – click here to make a donation and help us keep the shelves of the Warehouse stocked!
  3. GEA’s Amazon Wishlist -click here to make a purchase and it will be shipped directly to the Warehouse. These are items that our teachers say are must-haves whether school is online or in-person.
  4. Supply Drives – Host a supply drive at your house of faith, business or club. We can give you all that you need to get started! Contact Louise Courts to learn more.
