How to donate to support local teachers or submit a project for funding – NBC Connecticut

Every year, teachers in our community rise to the challenge of getting the materials they need to help their students succeed.

From September 5 to 30, we’ll be highlighting local projects on air and online from DonorsChoose.org.

DonorsChoose is a platform where teachers can submit project requests for the possibility of having them funded by the community. Requests can include school supplies, food, essential hygiene items, or any item selected by teachers to help meet the needs of their students.
