The Education Partnership Committee has been able to fill a number of teacher requests for this school year thanks to the assistance of our generous members. We have been able to fulfill requests for approximately 10 area schools. We are looking forward to continuing to build relationships with the schools of SouthShore.
We have had a few requests that involve the commitment of time rather than donations of funds or supplies. If you would like to assist with the following requests, please contact the respective school.
