Being based in South Florida, the Adopt-A-Classroom team is familiar with the damage that heavy waters can cause. So our hearts went out to everyone who experienced the floods in Tennessee last month. While we were saddened by the destruction and losses, it was also heartening to see the outpour of support that followed. We were very glad to learn that schools received attention as well. In fact, on June 10th, Lady Antebellum held a fundraising concert benefiting schools in Nashville!
For this concert, OfficeMax, one of Adopt-A-Classroom’s national sponsors, committed $50,000 to a fundraising challenge that matched every dollar donated for Nashville-area schools up to a total of $50,000. The money will help replenish much needed classroom supplies for the schools affected by the floods.
While classes are out for the summer, you can still support our students and teachers in Nashville and all across Tennessee and, in fact, throughout the United States. We know that the teachers would sure be happy to have a classroom grant and donated funds available for when school starts up again in August/September. Just go to www.AdoptAClassroom.org.
