During the first back-to-school season following California’s reinforcement of the constitutional guarantee for free public education, many teachers have expanded their classroom shopping lists. For the last 19 years, RAFT has leveraged corporate and community donations of supplies, manufacturing byproducts, and technology to make teaching supplies affordable, and this year is no exception.

On Saturday, August 10, the San Jose Mercury News visited RAFT San Jose to interview teachers about their current challenges and learn how RAFT is helping them to stretch budgets. Teachers filled carts with everything from pencils and books to RAFT Hands-on Activity Kits while sharing their opinions on the new legislation.

KGO 810 and KRON 4 provided follow-up reporting, highlighting the continuing need for material donations, financial donations, and volunteers to assist RAFT in support of teachers.
