Nature Made, headquartered in West Hills California, is launching the #TeachHealthy campaign to help teachers across the country through this back-to-school season.
Nature Made is providing them additional support by giving more than seven million servings of immune-support products and donating $2 million to provide more than 13,000 teachers with supplies needed to maintain healthy classrooms.
“The #TeachHealthy campaign is our way of thanking teachers for the pivotal role they play in shaping the next generation by making their health a priority and ensuring they have the tools needed to teach in a healthy learning environment,” said Rhonda Hoffman, chief marketing officer at Pharmavite, the makers of Nature Made. “Our company purpose to bring the gift of health to life drives everything we do, and we’re so proud to see it manifested through this campaign.”
Nature Made is partnering with DonorsChoose, an education non-profit, to help support teachers’ immune health and fund their requests for resources under the organization’s “Health & Wellness” category. Since teachers often pay for supplies and materials for their classrooms out of pocket, Nature Made will provide a 3:1 match on every donation made to a Health & Wellness project on DonorsChoose. In addition, Nature Made is giving free ImmuneMAX and Vitamin C gummies to teachers and other school faculty who are helping create a healthy learning environment under difficult circumstances.
#TeachHealthy expands on Nature Made’s recent efforts to promote health and wellness in schools. In 2020, Nature Made donated $1 million to LAUSD’s Grab & Go food relief program and funded educational garden and backpack programs.
“Students across the country have experienced school closings and reopenings throughout the pandemic, and many are in a classroom for the first time in over a year,” said Charles Best, founder of DonorsChoose. “Teachers are going the extra mile and prioritizing their students’ well-being, whether they’re learning in-person or virtually. Our partnership with Nature Made empowers these teachers who are not only enriching their students’ education but also shaping classroom settings that are conducive to learning.”
