Teacher Locker


Supporting Teachers = Supporting Students

The Teacher Locker is a place where EVSC teachers grades Pre-K-12 can receive FREE school supplies for their classroom at no cost to the teacher.  The goal is to reduce what teachers spend out of their own pockets for their classrooms.  Please note this will not be a substitute for parents buying annual supplies as required by the EVSC or a location where parents receive free supplies for the year.

The program started as a six way collaborative partnership between the EVSC; EVSC Foundation; Public Education Foundation of Evansville; Evansville Area Council PTA; Evansville Teachers Association and Evansville Retired Teachers Association.


Teacher Locker is a place where the community can come together to provide free classroom supplies in order to support teaching, promote student achievement and drive school success.


EVSC Teachers will never have to worry about purchasing classroom supplies and materials out of their own pockets.

What We Do

We work with individuals, local partners, and other community organizations to generate funding and in-kind donations for EVSC classrooms. Supplies we accept include (but are not limited to): notebooks, pencils, pens, paper, glue, scissors, markers, paint, art supplies, decorations, calculators, staplers, and binders. Right now, our most at-need item is new or gently-used desktop organizers. We gladly accept donations of classroom items from current and retired educators.

View our “wish list” of acceptable items here.


We are located at the AIS Diamond Campus (access through “C.A.R.E.S.” entrance #29 on Wedeking Ave.) and operate during the school year, starting August 2019. We are open to EVSC K-6 teachers by appointment on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Teacher Locker is closed on EVSC snow days and holidays.
