Educator WarehouseThe Educator Warehouse, a project of WSFC Council of PTAs, Forsyth Education Partnership, and WS/FC Schools, is a facility where teachers can “shop” among thousands of new and gently used donated items for use in their classrooms at no cost to them. Located in a pod behind Diggs-Latham Elementary School, the Educator Warehouse is open weekly from August through April.All classroom teachers are allowed three visits per school-year and can shop for a designated amount of supplies during each visit.
The Educator Warehouse depends on the donations of supplies, funds, and time from our community. In addition to classroom supplies, we need funds to supplement the donated supplies and cover our nominal overhead expenses. All donations are tax-deductible. Because the Educator Warehouse is a 100% volunteer operation, we need a dedicated volunteer force to ensure that we can operate on a regular basis. Whether you can commit to one day a week or just once a month, please consider volunteering. When you see the smiles and gratitude on the faces of the teachers, you'll be glad you did!As a project of the WSFC Council of PTAs, all PTA units need to support the Educator Warehouse by donating supplies and providing volunteers to make this facility a success. Show your teachers you support them by supporting the Educator Warehouse with your donations and time.
