America`s teachers support their students everyday in the classroom. Sometimes, they reach into their own pockets to pay for school supplies and learning materials.
Bob Yarbrough explains how a popular restaurant is stepping in to help relieve some of the costs.
Public school teachers spend on average $500.00 out of their own pocket to make sure their students do not go without needed learning supplies.
"They often see their students go without books, art supplies, the technology needed for a great education."
Charles Best, a former school teacher, understood the need and created donorschoose.org. The website gives people the opportunity to donate to teachers who need supplies for their classroom projects.
"Now at limeadesforlearning.com, people can vote on the requests that they want to see sonic bring to life."
Limeades for Learning is in its eighth year, and through October 23rd the public can decide where $1 million dollars will help classrooms get supplies.
"We`ve recently redoubled our commitment and announced that we will be putting $15 million dollars into public school classrooms across the country over the next five years."
