Adopt a Classroom

AdoptaClassroom.org, a non-profit organization, provide funds directly to individual teachers to support their specific classroom.   Given our local educational funding shortfall, adoptaclassroom.org is an excellent way to support a classroom and a teacher through a tax deductible donation.  100% of the funds donated go directly to a teacher chosen by the donator.  The donator gets a tax receipt as well as a full report on how the money was used by the teacher and the positive impact the donation had on the specific classroom. Please click on the brochure link, below, for more information on how you can help.
