Every year, teachers spend an average of $1,000
of their own money on classroom supplies.
That's over $4 billion annually. The number
is surprising, the reality is unacceptable.
OfficeMax® joined with AdoptAClassroom.org to create
A Day Made Better: A one-day event that awards more
than 1,000 teachers with over $1,000 in school supplies,
and brings attention to the issue of teacher-funded classrooms.
October 2, 2012 will mark the sixth anniversary. Over the last
five years we've been able to surprise over 5,500 teachers with
a new chair, loads of classrooms supplies and the recognition
they so richly deserve.
