Educator Donation Program
Why did you start the Educator Donation Program?
Our family has long roots in education, with two of our closest cousins being art and special education teachers. It all started when we thought the art teacher might really love some baking cups for paint projects instead of disposable cups. After flooding her school with as many baking cups and baking mats as they could possibly use, we formalized our Educator Donation Program to expand locally here in Chatham County and Chapel Hill, NC, as well as nationwide. The Educator Donation Program has spanned over 250+ classrooms across 35 states (+ DC). To learn more about the Educator Donation Program visit here.
What sort of donations do educators/caregivers receive?
A small percentage of sales come back as returns and we do not put those items back into new inventory. Often times these returns are new or gently used and are entered directly into our Educator Donation Program. The items vary based on our inventory, but most often are baking cups and mesh bags.
Is it really free?
The program is entirely free, including shipping. We feel strongly that we expect teachers and caregivers to give too many of their own resources to provide for their students and patients. We would like to provide this program for free for as long as we can as our way to give back and acknowledge the important role educators and caregivers play in our society.
Who can request free product as a part of the Educator Donation Program?
The Educator Donation Program is open to all educators and caregivers, ranging from daycares/preschools, homeschools, to trade programs and elementary/middle/high school education. If you have a way to use new or gently used products in a way that gives back, please let us know.
