Classroom Donation with Elmer’s #BagItForward

Elmer’s Champion for Kids #BagItForward

Last week the kids went back to school around here.

Some moms were tearful and others celebrated the start of a new school year and getting back into a weekly schedule for their families.

I had a great oppurtunity to help a local teacher with a donation of school supplies through the Elmer’s #BagItForward Simple Service Program with #ChampionsForKids.

Last week I wrote about the local need for school supply donations and the Champions For Kids program that Elmer’s Glue is very involved in.

I even brought you along on my shopping trip as I purchased Elmer’s glue products and other back to school supplies I would be donating to a teacher at my granddaughter Hailey’s Elementary  School.

When my youngest daughter Audrey was in elementary school I volunteered in her class rooms all through K-5th grade.

I saw first hand how many students there are that couldn’t afford to bring in all the school supplies on the school supply lists each year at Back To School time.

During my years of volunteering I did what I could do to help ease the teachers burden and would donate extra supplies to the classroom.

I decided to #BagItForward to Hailey’s teacher this year after seeing how long the list of back to school supplies  was for the 1st grade. The supply list was the longest of all five grades at her school.

Hailey’s new teacher was so happy to receive her classroom basket packed full of Elmer’s glue products and other school supplies for her classroom.

I was so happy to see the big smile of appreciation on Hailey’s teachers face the first day of school.

Hailey was also excited that we could help out her new teacher.

  1. I did something like this for my kids Kindergarten & 3rd grade teachers this year, but I included general office supplies that the teacher uses every day. They use pens, post-its, sharpies, paper clips, etc. every day. The teachers loved the carrier of goodies.

  2. Nice job!! She looks so happy to help her teacher!!

  3. How wonderful!!! I also buy a lot of extra supplies for school and give it to the teachers. I often talk to her and ask her what the things are that she would appreciate most for the classroom and then I buy multiples of those. Glues, post-its, pencils, markers, pens etc etc.
    Hailey is so cute :))
    I have also awarded you ‘One Lovely Blog Award’ :))

  4. I can’t help but wish there were more parents like this. Schools everywhere would be a much better place for kids if people in the community itself help in their own little way. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant or special. Even the little things will do.
