Help welcome new educators
It’s a fact, teachers spend their own money setting up their classroom. This is especially true for those first-year teachers right out of college.
Every year the Aiken County Public School District conducts first-year teacher orientation before the start of classes, and every year since 2009, the Greater Aiken Chamber of Commerce and participating members have helped to welcome these educators with gift cards that will help them offset some of the costs of setting up their first classroom.
There are an estimated 100 first-year teachers in our community this year, and with your help, we can really make them feel welcome.
Businesses and individuals may sponsor one teacher for $50 or may sponsor multiples. A list of all who contribute is given to each teacher. Those who sponsor 10 or more teachers may place marketing material in the reusable tote teachers receive from our presenting sponsor SRP Federal Credit Union.
Sponsorships are available to purchase online at www. aikenchamber.net or by calling the Aiken Chamber office at 803.641.1111.
