Imagine paying out of pocket for the supplies you need to do your job – everything from pens and paper clips, to bigger ticket items like your laptop and desk chair. Whew! Aren’t you glad you don’t have to do that?
While this may be a scary alternate reality for many of us, for teachers, spending their own money to equip their classrooms is their reality.
That’s why Alerus Mortgage is supporting teachers in Minnesota with a generous donation of $10,000 to AdoptAClassroom.org. This donation will help 14 lucky teachers in the greater Twin Cities area purchase needed classroom supplies this school year. By easing the financial burden these teachers face, Alerus is ensuring more students will have what they need to learn, dream, and succeed.
Since 2016, Alerus has donated $27,000 to support 91 teachers in the greater Twin Cities area, benefiting more than 2,000 students.
