While the Oakland Athletics are still contemplating their potential move to Las Vegas, they are already making a significant impact on the local community. In a heartwarming gesture, the Athletics recently donated $30,000 to the Public Education Foundation (PEF) to support teachers in the Las Vegas area. This generous contribution will provide essential school supplies to educators, easing their financial burdens and ensuring that students have access to the resources they need for a quality education.

The Public Education Foundation (PEF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting education in the Las Vegas Valley. One of their notable initiatives is the Teacher Superstore, a program designed to assist teachers in acquiring school supplies at a fraction of their regular cost. This resource plays a vital role in empowering educators to create engaging and dynamic learning environments for their students.

Thanks to the Oakland Athletics’ generous donation, 75 teachers from Title 1 schools within the Clark County School District were able to shop for much-needed school supplies at the PEF Teacher Superstore. Beyond this, the A’s provided free PEF Teacher Superstore memberships for 180 CCSD teachers, allowing each of them to receive up to $500 worth of supplies for free. This substantial contribution directly alleviates the financial strain many teachers face when purchasing supplies for their classrooms.

The PEF Teacher Superstore offers a wide range of supplies, from classroom basics like notebooks and pencils to educational games and student behavioral incentives. This diverse selection ensures that teachers can access resources that cater to their specific classroom needs, ultimately enhancing the quality of education provided to students.
