Thank you for "Stocking the Schools"!

Thank you to the 25 firms, agencies and organizations who stepped up to provide needed school supplies to local teachers and students through the IndyBar Professionalism Committee's inaugural "Stock the Schools" school suppy drive, which took place on Wednesday, August 14 on Monument Circle in downtown Indianapolis. The school supply drive benefitted local non-profit Teachers' Treasures.

Through the generosity of the legal community, teachers will have access to free supplies, helping to ensure success for their students in the new school year.

Working with more than 240 schools to benefit over 100,000 Marion County school children, Teachers' Treasures has been operating as a free school supply store since 2000. Teachers “shop” once each month for the items their students need to complete homework and class assignments. By using items donated by businesses and individuals, Teacher’s Treasures provides a unique way to transfer unneeded surplus items to teachers and children in need.
