Volunteers


Why volunteer?

Volunteers are a fundamental part of Companies to Classrooms. We could not do this on our own, which is why we ask you to consider volunteering with us. Acquiring supplies, maintaining inventory, stocking shelves, promoting our services and managing our teacher supply store are just a few of the tasks necessary to keep us going.

 

Who volunteers?

Our volunteers are an eclectic group consisting of individuals, current or retired teachers, students, retirees or employees of corporate partners. We welcome anyone interested in supporting education in our community.

 

Is there an on-going time commitment?

No, this can be a one-time project or an on-going commitment. We just appreciate your willingness to help serve our teachers and students!
