“Well, here I go again, spending $500.00 to $1000.00 this school year on classroom supplies for my first graders.”
“I’m already out of paper and it’s only the end of October. The school has informed me that I must pay back the school for anymore paper that I use the rest of the school year.”
“We received a list in the mail before school started of 15 classroom items that our son was to bring to school on the first day back. The school also asked for a donation of $100.00 to cover cost of classroom supplies for the rest of the year.”
The above discouraging comments from two teacher friends and a parent friend of mine planted the seed that has now become Teacher Resource Center of the North Bay.
TRCNB is the first and only free classroom supply store where teachers from all public schools in Napa County and beyond, as we are able, can "shop" for pencils, pens, paper, glue sticks, notebooks and more and spend no money!
TRCNB, a volunteer, community based non-profit organization will thrive because of the generosity of individuals, small businesses and large corporations who believe that our children are our future and deserve the best learning environment we can provide them.
