The Pencil Box

The Junior League of Tulsa, Inc., has a partnership with The Pencil Box, which is a non-profit organization with the mission of equalizing the learning experience by offering school supplies to local area teachers for use in their classrooms.  To be eligible to shop at The Pencil Box, educators must be lead K-12th grade classroom teachers in Tulsa Public Schools with at least 70% of the students qualifying for the USDA’s National School Lunch Program.  Eligible teachers are allowed to shop at The Pencil Box for a nominal yearly fee.

We recognize the importance of every child having adequate school supplies to support their educational needs.  Our provisional members volunteer at The Pencil Box and help operate, maintain, and stock the store.  The Pencil Box project offers our provisional members their first opportunity for hands-on interaction in the community as they train to become active members of the Junior League of Tulsa, Inc.
