Adopt-a-Class TN is a 501(c) (3) charitable organization that supports local public elementary schools with classroom volunteers, supplies and contributions to large classroom projects.
This website includes information about the many Adopt-a-Class programs. Please consult the menu to learn about our charity.
Generous contributions from the East TN Chapter of the 100 Women Who Care Giving Circle enabled establishment of a Family Engagement Program. Literacy resources and books are provided for home use by families.
Classroom and home-based volunteers are currently serving Loudon, Steekee and Vonore Elementary Schools. Please follow this link to learn how you can help.
Adopt-a-Class thanks the student designers, their teachers, production and booth volunteers and the many people who purchased our winter holiday greeting cards and gift boxes this year.
A new collection of all-purpose cards will be produced and available in the spring of 2023.
"My school volunteer time is the high point of my week."
"The children are precious, and being a part of their education has been uniquely rewarding."
"I start my morning at PreK with a group hug. There is seriously no better way to start a day!"
As the founder and director of Adopt-a-Class TN, I wish to thank the many volunteers who have donated countless hours to the education of our local children. The generosity of our community has also provided year-round school supplies and help support many educational projects. Our efforts are very much appreciated by the faculty and students of our adopted schools. Adopt-a-Class began at one school with 14 volunteers. Five years later, over 100 volunteers serve 3 schools in many different ways, and we are a legally recognized charitable organization. It is my honor and privilege to be associated with my very special Adopt-a-Class family.
