Florida teachers get free coffee all month

Wawa is bringing back it’s “Cheers to Classrooms” promotion that kicked off yesterday.  This allows educators and school staff to grab a coffee or fountain drink of any size every day in August at no cost.

How awesome is this?   So great to see corporations doing so much to help teachers get read for the busy school year.   Our teachers have been back in their classrooms getting ready for school to start, so this can help them getting back on their routine. So starting now, Florida teachers get a free coffee all month long

Hillsborough, Pinellas, Polk, Manatee and Citrus county schools all start on Aug. 10th.

This gives teachers, parents and kids about a week to get back into the routine.  So now is the time to start getting up earlier and getting prepared.

Many parents are shopping for school supplies as we speak.  You can still save money by shopping for your supplies during the Back to School Holiday Tax that runs until August 7th.  You can save money on school clothes, supplies and so much more to get your child ready for the year to come.

Not only is WaWa giving out free coffee to school staff, but they are also doing something else to help out teachers this year.

WaWa has been giving back to our Florida teachers in so many ways.  Another is through a partnership with “Donor’s Choose,” which has designated a $50,000 chainwide matching fund to support schools throughout its operating area.

Teachers can submit a project online and those schools that meet the convenience store’s funding criteria could receive matching funds starting Aug. 22.

Make sure you tell all the teachers our there and share this story too!
