Teacher Resource Center of the North Bay (TRCNB) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides teachers in Napa County, California, with basic classroom supplies free of charge to enhance students' educational and creative experiences: helping teachers help kids.
Reasons Behind our Mission: With the current state cutbacks, supplies for teachers and students have been drastically reduced. Local teachers who once received adequate funding for classroom supplies are now receiving $5.00 or less per child for the entire school year. Consequently, many teachers are spending anywhere from $500.00 to $2,000.00 of their own money per school year for their classroom needs. These cutbacks dramatically affect the students in our free/reduced lunch population. TRCNB is committed to making sure every student has the necessary tools to succeed.
