About Classroom Closet
Who we are:
Classroom Closet supports public, charter and private schools in Alamance County by providing resources and supplies to teachers. After an annual membership fee, teachers can shop 4 times a year, once each nine weeks.
What we do:
We know teachers dip into their own pockets to supplement their students’ needs. By providing the Classroom Closet, we can do our part in preparing each student for the competitive world they face in and out of the classroom.
How you can help:
ACE has the ability, with the support from the community, to directly affect our schools in Alamance County. Supply drives, monetary donations and volunteer hours can positively impact our goals at Classroom Closet. The majority of our supplies come from the generosity of people like you.

The annual membership fee is $30 per teacher, or $20 for first year (brand new to the profession) teachers.
What Can I Get?
Classroom Closet is stocked with basic school supplies. Most items in the online store are new. There are items that have been donated in limited supply. We focus on keeping the essential supplies stocked on the website, such as: pencils, pens, notebook paper, spiral notebooks, crayons, erasers, glue, markers, scissors, copy paper, and more. We are working towards having a time period where teachers can visit our physical warehouse once a quarter and pick up any oddities or "non-essential" supplies. We will keep you informed on the progress of this as we know the Treasure Box items have always been a hit!
Teachers Agree To: Write a thank you note to a donor each nine weeks. Donors are vital to keeping our shelves stocked.
