Waashington - U.S. Cellular is giving $1 million to help teachers erase classroom needs with the return of the company’s Calling All Teachers campaign. The pinch of budget cuts has compelled many teachers to supplement shortfalls by purchasing basic supplies like crayons, textbooks and calculators with personal resources.
In a partnership with www.DonorsChoose.org, U.S. Cellular and its associates are encouraging teachers to register on the site and register as a “U.S. Cellular Teacher” June and throughout the summer. Then, they can come back this fall and post their classroom projects for potential funding.
Last year, U.S. Cellular funded 51 projects in Washington valued at nearly $26,000 that impacted more than 3,600 students.
Do you believe teachers deserve something better? If so, tell a teacher you know about U.S. Cellular’s one million dollar Calling All Teachers campaign.
Between now and the end of August, teachers can visit uscellular dot com and click on the Calling All Teachers link to register for a chance to receive funding for a classroom project.
Last year, U.S. Cellular funded 51 classroom projects throughout Washington. All public school teachers are eligible for the program.
