Did you know that 94% of teachers spend their own money on school supplies?
Four Peaks For Teachers was founded in 2011 to help reduce the financial burden on teachers in the Southwest—many of whom spend hundreds of dollars on school supplies each year. Using direct donations and funds raised through beer sales, we purchase the supplies teachers tell us they need, from scissors and staplers to pencils and paper, and build kits to hand out for free in multiple cities and states. This year, our goal is to distribute 10,000 kits to teachers in Arizona, New Mexico, and Nevada. But we can’t do it without your help.
Are you a teacher?
Head to the “Teacher Kits” link at the top of the page and select the state in which you teach. You’ll be able to choose from several pickup locations and reserve your school supply kit. (At this time, we’re only able to distribute kits in Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico.)
Want to help?
You can support the Four Peaks For Teachers program this summer by purchasing Kilt Lifter, our award-winning Scottish-style amber ale. A percentage of every can, bottle, or pint you buy will be used to expand the program and provide supplies to thousands of teachers in need.
Trying to to your job without the supplies you need isn’t easy. Here’s what it looked like when our brewers gave it a shot.
