La. teachers have until Jan. 31 to apply for classroom funding

AdoptAClassroom.com and ExxonMobil have extended the deadline for teachers to receive up to $100 each of free funding for their classrooms through Jan. 31.

The opportunity has also expanded to include middle and high school teachers at qualifying Title 1 Schools in Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas. The non-profi t, AdoptAClassroom.org pairs up donors with
teachers across the U.S. to provide the funds they need to purchase hands-on learning resources.

When “adopted,” teachers receive 100% of the contributed funds to purchase items that meet their individual classroom needs.

The $100,000 check presented to support local Baton Rouge classrooms
through AdoptAClassroom.org was funded from the commitment of donating two cents per gallon of fuel sold at local ExxonMobil-branded service stations throughout the month of November 2014.
