Del Monte is Helping Teachers & Students

The school is the last expenditure upon which America should be willing to economize. ~Franklin D. Roosevelt

Teachers throughout the globe often struggle to supply their students with the proper tools needed to achieve a good education.  Many schools in the United States have been experiencing some major budget cuts. 

This has resulted in many teachers losing their jobs.  Those teachers that do remain have a much heavier load to carry.  Larger classrooms mean busier teachers. Sadly many teachers often reach into their own funds to provide supplies for their classroom, however, it is at the point where they can no longer afford to so because of less pay.  

Of course it's the students who suffer the most.  The world and education is progressive and without the needed tools students will not advance and meet their full potential. 

It is a sad situation.   Del Monte recognizes the struggle of teachers throughout the world and is providing an opportunity to help with needed supplies.  Thank you Del Monte!

 Del Monte also recognizes a second struggle, and that's getting kids to eat healthy. 



Recognizing these Two needs Del Monte is hosting their second annual  Del Monte's "Teacher Monday":  Cash for Classrooms.  Teachers throughout the  U.S., Canada and Central America  can enter to win cash for school supplies as well as fresh fruit for their classrooms. 

Sixty teachers will win a total of $1,000 in cash to purchase school supplies and fresh fruit for their students. Top winners will also get a Del Monte FreshÒ Field Day event for their school in which the entire student body will enjoy a day of Del Monte fresh fruit, games and fun activities. Salad bars for schools will also be given away through promotions at supermarkets. Go to www.fruits.com for more details.



Students also have the opportunity to vote for their favorite teacher on a daily basis.   The voting begins on 9/26.

Schools located in Del Monte Fresh Produce’s tropical growing regions; Costa Rica and Guatemala, will also receive grants for school supplies.


To spread the word the generous folks at Del Monte are offering three of my readers $25 dollars in free fruit and/or vegetables each.  Each winner will receive five $5 gift certificates; totaling $25, that expire on 4/30/12. 


 The first winner drawn will also receive a back pack filled with school supplies.  Cool right?!

we have major budget cuts in our districts, but most of the school supplies shouldn't fall on the teachers!

I noticed something odd on the twitter tweet links you have, for some reason in on twitter WOT gives them a red flag, but when going to a page they do not have one. Almost made me didn't post any tweets on contest because I thought it was a bad website.
