The Adopt-a-Class TN Donation Program provides school supplies to children and faculty at each of our adopted schools.
CHILDREN ARE OUR FUTURE!
75% OF LOCAL CHILDREN ARE ECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED.
CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME.
THE EDUCATORS SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PERSONALLY SUPPORT THEIR CLASSROOMS!
THE IRS CERTIFIED THAT ADOPT-A-CLASS IS A CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION.
Donations are always needed to replenish supplies at our adopted schools. We believe educators should never have to personally support their classrooms. Collected supplies benefit students, teachers and support staff. We hope you will consider Adopt-a-Class as a worthy recipient of your charitable allocations. Contributions are very much appreciated by the
teachers, staff, classroom volunteers and students.
