Teacher Resource Center of the North Bay

Teacher Resource Center of the North Bay

What We Do:

Help make sure that students and teachers have the supplies they need. Reduce out of pocket expenses incurred by teachers who make use of our new, recycled, re-purposed, and re-usable donations to benefit children. Each semester, teachers are able to enhance learning opportunities for their students when they “shop” for classroom supplies free of charge.

Teachers’ annual out of pocket classroom expenses average $500. Our organization accepts lightly used in-kind donations from the community that we make available to teachers for free. Our contributions inspire creativity, critical thinking, and communication skills, and remove restrictions caused by monetary constraints.

Once a semester, teachers may schedule a “shopping” date. Upvalley teachers are able shop online and have their orders delivered by volunteers. We also give away backpacks to teachers so they have them in case a student doesn’t have one, or for students who have lost their belongings in natural disasters.

Other Ways to Help:

Volunteer opportunities:

  • “Done in a Day Projects”: Shred Day, Fill a Bus Day, New Teacher Day
  • Orientation Day (1 to 2 hours once a year)
  • Assist with teacher shopping in 1 1/2 hour shifts once a month.
  • Volunteer Coordinator: emails and calls. Can work from home, 1 hour per week.

Business Partners:

Rippey Family Vineyard will match the first $1000 in donations given to Teacher Resource Center of the North Bay through the Give!Guide.

Hersly Wines will donate to the first two $250 donors:  one bottle of Cabernet and a tasting for two, paired with cheese and charcuterie.

Napa Native will donate a Wine and Wellness Tour Experience to first $500 donor.


This is the real deal. Helpful, fun, and essential. It takes a village to raise a child, and your collaboration is invaluable. Endless thanks!
