"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest" - Benjamin Franklin

Thank you for stopping by to supply!

This year marked the fourth and most successful IndyBar Stock the School event! Wednesday, July 20, 2016, IndyBar members donated supplies that will be used for over 100 classrooms.

This year, the IndyBar partnered with RTV6 and Two Men and a Truck to benefit Teachers’ Treasures in Indianapolis. From the hours of 10:30 a.m. to1:30 p.m., members of the IndyBar’s Professionalism Committee staffed a donation drop-off station on the steps of Monument Circle.

Donations from firms and individuals ranged from book bags, pens, and pencils to filing cabinets and drop boxes. With the help of all those who donated, the bar collected over eight pallets of school and office supplies. This event could not be a success without the generosity of our members and local firms and agencies!

New this year, with our partnership with RTV6, two IndyBar members, Stephanie Slone, Indiana Department of Education and MaryAnne Mindrum, U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Indiana, were interviewed on the 6 a.m. and noon news broadcasts. For the noon broadcast, we were joined by Julie Pursley of RTV6 out on Monument Circle highlighting our collection.

Thanks again for all the donations and well wishes! Didn’t get a chance to stop by? Don’t worry! Stop by Teachers’ Treasures to donate office or school supplies today.

About Teachers' Treasures
Teachers’ Treasures has been operating since 2000 and connects teachers with free supplies that they can use to assist their students. They work with over 240 schools to benefit more than 100,000 Marion County school children. 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, Teachers’ Treasures provides a unique way to transfer unneeded surplus items to teachers and children in need. Some of the items regularly needed are copy and lined paper, pens, pencils, crayons, Kleenex, sanitizer and office furniture. A full list of suggested items can be found at teacherstreasures.org.
