Do you remember that teacher?
The one who showed you just how much fun reading or math could be?
The one that held you accountable?
The one who put you on a life-path that has shaped who you are today?
Few professionals touch as many people as teachers do or put so much of themselves and their own resources into their job.
At Impact Thrift Stores, we consider ourselves a “Community Partner” with the schools that neighbor our stores. We work with those schools in a variety of ways in an effort to provide resources and programs that might benefit the schools, students and teachers.
Some of you may recognize Frank Hartwell in the photo, Impact Thrift’s Education Director, and a retired teacher from Lower Merion High School. “What most people don’t know is that Impact Thrift has always had a commitment to local schools. Many people who shop at our stores are unaware that Impact Thrift has an Education Program; which offers college/high school internships, community service, senior project opportunities for high school students, and the Impact LIVE Leadership Program,” commented Frank.
Teachers are unique and special. During the month of September, Teacher and School Staff Appreciation Month, Impact Thrift Stores would like to acknowledge the crucial role teachers play in making sure every child receives a quality education.
We would like to publicly thank current Teachers and School Staff for their unwavering passion, dedication and commitment to educating our future. In recognition of your hard work and the financial hardships you often endure, Impact Thrift is giving all teachers and school support staff a 25% discount on purchases at all of our 4 stores during the month of September. Simply present your current school ID at checkout to receive your discount.*
At checkout, you will be asked to register your school to win one of two grand prizes: a jaw dropping teacher’s lounge makeover or Impact Thrift will “play Santa” and deliver a truck load of toys to your school. The school with the most registrations wins! How much fun is that!?
