LAS VEGAS – The Mutual of America Foundation honored The Public Education Foundation today at Bally’s as one of 10 merit finalists in the Mutual of America Community Partnership Award national competition.

The Public Education Foundation is being recognized for its Teacher Exchange initiative, which brings much-needed resources to Clark County School District classrooms while also helping the environment.

The Teacher Exchange is a partnership among The Public Education Foundation, Clark County School District, Caesars Entertainment, Caesars Foundation, Kids In Need Foundation and other organizations.

A reuse/repurpose/surplus resource center, the Teacher Exchange collects books, office supplies, manufacturing and convention overruns and other surplus materials otherwise headed for landfills and distributes them to CCSD teachers for use in the classroom. Since its founding in 2002, the Teacher Exchange has repurposed approximately 2 million pounds of material and distributed about $10 million of classroom resources.

“The Foundation is honored to receive this national recognition,” said Judi Steele, president of The Public Education Foundation. “The Teacher Exchange is our commitment to environmental stewardship and a tangible reminder to teachers that they are valued members of the community.”

The Mutual of America Community Partnership Award annually honors outstanding contributions nonprofit organizations make to society in partnership with public, private and other social sector organizations.
