Teachers are among the most important people in our children’s lives. Every year, thousands of Virginia teachers spend countless hours, in and out of the classroom, making sure our children have the knowledge and skills they need to succeed.
Anyone who knows a teacher will tell you that they don’t do it for the money. In fact, according to the National Education Association, the average starting salary for a teacher is just $38,617. Yet, most teachers spend nearly $500 per year, of their own money, to purchase school supplies for their classrooms.
That dedication was the inspiration for this contest and it’s why we’ve donated more than $5,000 worth of gift cards over the past three years and will be adding more than $2,000 this year. If you, or your company, would like to help us with this important cause please contact Kimberly Mays at 804.836.2373. Thanks!
