Teacher Resource Store Shopping Guidelines - Waiting List
Each school’s identified representative is responsible for scheduling their school shopping trip, providing an updated list of full-time teachers eligible to shop, and communicating any changes.
Upon arrival, all teachers must check-in and show their photo school identification in order to be allowed to shop.
Due to space constraints, 10 teachers may shop at once. We encourage those who are waiting to assist in setting up the store for the next group.
Each teacher may fill one shopping cart with products for their classroom use.
The StoreHouse Teacher Resource Store hopes to open to a larger group of school buildings beginning in 2020. Schools must be in Kent County and at 70% or above free/reduced price lunch qualified students. Follow us on Facebook and get on our wait list to be notified when an opportunity comes available.

Shopping trips are scheduled through a provided link with Sign Up Genius and are limited to ONE HOUR on site.
What is the limit / quantity that can be shopped?
Each partner is allowed up to 2 skids* (24 apple box equivalent) per month. Some quantities of product are limited / or unavailable to be shopped and will be marked accordingly. This can include personal care and school supply items.

Can we shop one day and pick up another?

Teacher Resource Store FAQs
Who is eligible to shop?
Full-time teaching staff with a full-time classroom. This does not include Para Pro’s, Administrative, Social Workers, Librarians, Media, Behavioral Specialists, Nurse, Psychologists, Occupational Therapist, Custodians or Speech Language. Friends and family are not allowed to accompany teachers while shopping.
Is there anything required of teachers?
Teachers should supply their school’s TRS representative with at least one “Pay it Forward” story each year. This is an example of how you not only encouraged students’ academic success, but also giving back. This could be diaper or hygiene drives for the Essentials Store, students serving at local food pantries, letters to veterans, penny drives, etc.
What do we need to bring?
Each teacher must present their school photo identification in order to shop. You should also bring bags or boxes to pack and carry your items.
What if a teacher cannot make it for a scheduled shopping trip? Can they reschedule or send someone in their place?
Because TRS is reliant upon volunteers, we must limit each school to one shopping night per season. This means that teachers unable to attend during their school’s scheduled time will have to wait until the next season.
IF Our school is at 65%, are we close enough to qualify?
Unfortunately, no. Our sponsorship agreement with WorldVision requires that all member schools provide 70% free or reduced lunches. Currently, we have a waiting list of schools that meet or exceed the 70% requirement, but we are unable to serve.
Does The Teachers Resource Store supply bags or boxes?
We encourage teachers to bring their own, as we cannot guarantee that boxes will be available.
Is there someone who can help load cars?
No. All teachers will be responsible for handling of product.
