2022 Pencils 4 Schools
The 2022 Pencils 4 Schools Program has concluded, and we thank all teachers and educators for your participation. Thank you for all you do for the students and our community!
As we kick off this year’s William Mattar, P.C. Pencils 4 Schools program, we have reached 2 million pencils donated to teachers and students throughout the communities we serve.
Our team at William Mattar, understands that education is key to a successful future. With school budgets decreasing, many teachers purchase supplies for their students with their own money. The William Mattar Pencils 4 Schools program helps lessen this financial burden for teachers. Our goal is to help local educators and students achieve their academic goals; having enough school supplies on your first day is a great way to start.
How Does the William Mattar 2022 Pencils 4 Schools Program Work?
New York State teachers scheduled to teach during the 2022-2023 school year may submit their request online to receive a bulk box of 250 pencils donated for their classroom. * After submitting your registration, you will receive an auto-reply email acknowledging that we have received your registration. However, this email is not a guarantee of receiving a pencil donation.
If you are a teacher in the Western New York area, eligible for the donation, and we receive your registration while supplies last, you will receive a second email. This second email will be your invitation to attend the in-person pencil pick-up on Saturday, August 27th. The pencil pick-up will be at our Williamsville office, 6720 Main Street, Williamsville, NY 14221, from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM.
If you are a teacher outside of the Western New York area, eligible for the donation, and we receive your registration while supplies last, you will receive a second email informing you that pencils will be shipped directly to the school address you provided on your registration form. Please be sure to check your email (including spam/junk boxes) for an email with a subject line of “Pencils 4 Schools Shipping”.
If you did not receive a second email with a pencil pick-up invitation or shipping information prior-to August 26, 2022, we were unable to honor your request due to limited supply and great demand. We highly recommend registering early.
If you live in the Western New York area and cannot attend our scheduled August 27th, 2022, pencil pickup between 10:00 AM and 12:00 PM, please designate someone to come on your behalf, as we will not have any alternate pick-up dates available. Please refer to Terms and Conditions for complete program details.
