The Teacher's Supply Closet, a collaboration of the Sandy Springs Education Force (SSEF) and the Community Assistance Center (CAC), is available for teachers to request required classroom supplies for their economically disadvantaged students. Volunteers will pack your supplies and deliver the order to your school. Our goal is to support our teachers as much as possible and deliver the supplies within a week, with the hope that you understand that our resources are sometimes limited.
These supplies are meant to fill gaps for economically disadvantaged students whose supplies have not been provided by parents or in backpacks from community organizations such as CAC. Your school’s social worker can refer families to www.ourcac.org if you believe they could benefit from CAC's services.
We will be accepting orders between:
August 22 and December 8, 2023
January 8 and April 30, 2024
After that date, orders will be accepted again for the fall starting on August 20, 2024.
A heartfelt THANK YOU for everything you do for our students!
