Peely's Teacher Supply House

Peely's Teacher Supply House

It’s more than just a backpack.

We are excited to be rolling out a new program to ensure that students and teachers have the resources they need for success. Peely’s Teacher Supply House will provide school and classroom supplies to teachers at no cost. These are items that teachers often have to buy with their own money. In these challenging economic times, many families struggle to afford the basic necessities that students need for school. When students come to class without the supplies they need, teachers fill the gap.

Donate New Classroom Supplies!

Peely’s Teacher Supply House accepts donations of new school, office, and art supplies, and other learning materials that are suitable for classrooms. Please check the list of items we currently accept/do not accept below. We update this list frequently based on current inventory and whether we can safely store the items. We do not accept items that are not suitable for a classroom, or that are broken, damaged, dirty, or in poor condition.

If you have any additional questions about what to donate or what we accept, contact us using the email address or phone number listed below!
