School Supply Giveaway

Besides the holidays, August is likely the Zanes Team’s most favorite time of the year because it’s our annual School Supply Giveaway and we get jazzed up about it months in advance!

Why?

Because at Zanes we truly love our teachers in our community and….

because 9 years ago we recognized how desperately Tucson schools needed school supplies. Due to a lack of school funding, teachers were emptying their personal wallets to buy paper and other supplies for their students. Many students were showing up to school without even the most basic supplies like pencils, notebooks, and glue.

We couldn’t stand by and watch as our Tucson schoolchildren and teachers were denied of everything a school experience could be. That’s when we decided to launch an Annual Teacher School Giveaway. It was the best decision we ever made!

The first year in 2010, we did everything possible to get the word out about this event! It felt like we had to convince teachers that this wasn’t a scam and that we truly wanted to give them free school supplies- no strings attached! It was a great morning getting to know many of you at our first giveaway 9 years ago!

Each year, we got a little bit more organized, had a little more fun, and served more local schoolteachers!

Last year in 2018- 450 teachers participated in the event and the waitlist grew rapidly!

Our goal every year is to serve as many teachers as possible without lowering the quality or quantity of the school supplies provided… and have a lot of fun at the event, of course! This event is something we truly enjoy and try to make as special and memorable as possible for everyone who attends!

Pencils anyone?!

We are so thrilled to be saying thank you to our Tucson teachers in this way!

School Supply Giveaway and details!

IMPORTANT- READ CAREFULLY!!
  • Please fill out the entire application
  • Double check the spelling of your email! Often times, emails are submitted without correct spelling which means you can miss out on your invite and RSVP information. If we are unable to get into contact with you for any reason including misspelled addresses your application and invite will not be valid.  No exceptions.
  • If possible, please use a non-school email. Your school’s emails are extremely protected and in the past, some of our emails have been blocked or sent to spam.

  • Spots are filled on a first come, first served basis based on the qualifications. Once the spots are filled, teachers will be placed on the waiting list- but don’t worry! We do our best to accept as many wait-listed teachers as possible and often times we reach out to 20-50 teachers throughout the summer. So, keep an eye out as you might receive an invite!

  • 1 application per teacher (please do not sign up your co-workers) they must submit their own application so they are aware of the process and the qualifications.

So… you’ve submitted your application. Now what!?
  • Invites will be sent to the email you provided within 10 days after you submit your application IF you’ve secured a spot. Please read the email you receive entirely and RSVP using the provided link. If you do not RSVP using the link- your spot will not be held. Please note that invite emails go out in batches, therefore, you might receive one before or after a friend- no need to panic if someone receives one before you!
  • If you do not receive an email with an invite- you can automatically assume you have been placed on the wait-list! But don’t worry! About 20 spots open up throughout the summer and we will contact wait-listed teachers every Thursday leading up to the giveaway if a spot opens up!
