St. Thomas More High School to participate in charity event for school teachers

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- St. Thomas More High School will join nonprofits across the world participating in GivingTuesday, the global day of giving and generosity, on Tuesday, Nov. 30, to offer donors the opportunity to directly fund items and equipment requested by school teachers for their classrooms.

According to a news release from St. Thomas More High School, the GivingTuesday event at St. Thomas More will allow supporters to view items selected personally by our teachers, and by donating the cost of items from our Teachers’ Wish List, supporters will “purchase” this equipment for that teacher’s classroom.

“This year’s GivingTuesday campaign allows supporters to make direct investments in our classrooms,” St. Thomas More President John Hoch said. “We asked teachers of every subject what they needed to enhance the educational experience for their students, and through GivingTuesday, we hope to support their requests.”

Officials say that some of the items available for purchase include a laser engraver for our S.M.A.R.T. Manufacturing class, graphing calculators for our math classes, and NeuroMaker Brain-Computer Interfaces for our Biomedical Innovations capstone course.

St. Thomas More has reportedly participated in the GivingTuesday movement since 2014, with donors contributing over $60,000 in total, including over $20,000 in 2020.
