Assist During Teacher Shopping


The LP PENCIL Box is a resource center for MNPS teachers to shop for free items for their students and their classroom. On average, a teacher shopper leaves with around $300 in great supplies for their students. 
As a volunteer with The LP PENCIL Box Store Crew, you will assist teacher shoppers with check in and check out, restock store shelves with educational goodies, load teachers cars with free stuff, sort/bundle donations, and create manipulatives for distribution.
No day at The LP PENCIL Box is ever the same! Come join our Store Crew and make a difference in the lives of public school students across Nashville!
*Volunteers will be required to wear masks during shifts and follow other CDC social distancing, handwashing, and sanitation guidleines.

In accordance with Mayor John Cooper’s Roadmap for Reopening Nashville, Hands On Nashville recommends the following guidelines for volunteering: 
Individuals belonging to the following groups should not volunteer for in-person opportunities: ages 65 and up, those with elevated health risk or compromised immune systems, anyone who is feeling unwell (or who has been exposed to/is caring for someone who is sick or has a compromised immune system).   
Volunteers who attend projects should take recommended precautions, including maintaining distances between themselves and other people; practicing hand-washing and sanitation of spaces; wearing gloves, masks, and other protective gear; etc. As always, consult a medical professional should you begin to feel unwell at any point during or after a project.   
If you decide not to attend a project, please log in to hon.org and remove yourself from the opportunity ahead of time so that another volunteer may have a chance to fill your slot. If you have any trouble with this, email hon@hon.org and we’ll be happy to help!   
Please be aware that your project may be canceled with short notice. Projects are subject to change depending on shifting guidelines and circumstances. We appreciate your understanding.
