This month maurices is getting a head start on the new school year with a celebration of teachers across the country. They are recognizing and rewarding the style and commitment these dedicated educators have to the children in our communities.
Ninety-six percent of teachers purchase basic school supplies for their students whose families are unable to afford them. Two-thirds of all school supplies are purchased by teachers out of their own pockets.
maurices has partnered with AdoptAClassroom.org to help ease the strain on their personal finances. Customers are invited to donate to a local school when they shop in store August 19 through September 9, 2018. maurices associates will deliver the money raised to the schools in mid-September.
In recognition of teachers’ selfless dedication maurices will also launch a sweepstakes to give educators a chance to win a capsule wardrobe and supplies for their classroom. Five randomly selected winners will receive a $500 maurices gift card and $500 in AdoptAClassroom.org credit to purchase items for their classroom and their students. To enter, visit www.maurices.com/sweepstakes August 19 through September 9, 2018.
The celebration culminates with an in-store styling weekend for teachers September 7-9, 2018. All teachers are invited to visit their nearest maurices to discover fun trends that will transition from field trip to parent-teacher conferences. This project is an opportunity to celebrate dedicated teachers and the #sheros living maurices’ brand values every day: service, style and community.
Please join maurices in supporting local teachers by donating to AdoptAClassroom.org when you shop at maurices August 19 through September 9.
