Show your appreciation to teachers or staff members who have made this year special for your student. Instead of a “World’s Best Teacher” mug, how about a gift that gives back? When you make a $25 or more donation to HEF, we’ll send the designated staff member a nice certificate and a yummy cupcake. Make your donation between now and May 18. We’ll deliver the gifts in late May. Learn more about Gratitude Gifts. Order your Gratitude Gifts here.
