The Kids in Need Foundation recently announced that Elmer’s® Products Inc. has sponsored the second year of a teacher grants program. The foundation is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to providing free school supplies to economically disadvantaged school children and under-funded teachers.

Teachers nationwide can visit the Kids In Need Foundation website to apply for an Elmer’s Teacher Tool Kit grant, valued at $100-500. The grants will be given to teachers seeking to conduct classroom projects selected from a catalog of more than 500 projects currently in the Kids In Need Guide to Award Winning Projects. Approximately 250 grants sponsored by Elmer’s will be provided to teachers nationwide this year.

“The Kids In Need Foundation recognizes the creativity of teachers through our teacher grants program,” said Dave Smith, executive director. “Our libraryof projects showcases dynamic classroom activities, but they all require funds. We want to alleviate the need for teachers to reach into their own pockets to fund these projects, and we are thrilled to partner again with Elmer’s to provide teachers with the tools they need to strengthen imagination and critical thinking skills and abilities among their students.”

As part of the Elmer’s/Kids In Need partnership, Elmer’s will also donate product to the foundation’s national network of free stores for teachers. The Kids In Need National Network of Resource Centers has 27 facilities across the U.S. where teachers from low-income schools can obtain free school supplies for their students and classrooms. An Elmer’s Tools for Teachers section will be stocked with Elmer’s products, including Elmer’s School Glue and Disappearing Purple School Glue Sticks, art materials, and scrapbooking supplies.
