Goodreads Voice: Adopt-A-Classroom
Every year American teachers cumulatively spend an estimated $1.3 billion of their own money on student resources not covered by the school system—from basic school supplies, such as paper and pencils, to essentials like toilet paper, warm clothes, and food. Adopt-A-Classroom connects these underserved students with donors who are willing to help. Visit the site to browse for classes in need—you can search by grade level, poverty level, or simply find a school near you—and the teacher will receive 100 percent of your donation to spend at affiliate vendors online. Adopt-A-Classroom's administration is financed entirely by direct contributions and a percentage of its vendors' proceeds. Donors also receive a personal report and the opportunity to visit the benefiting class, cultivating many lasting relationships with teachers and students!
To date, Adopt-A-Classroom has facilitated the adoption of more than 84,000 classrooms and benefited 3.6 million students.
