Hand2mind Matching VersaTiles Classroom Kit Donations
Hand2mind will match donations up to $100,000 on its VersaTiles Classroom Kits on DonorsChoose.org. The matching opportunity will give teachers who request the kits more opportunities to engage with students to build their math and literacy skills.
The company is providing funding for VersaTiles Math Classroom and Literacy Classroom kits that are designed for different grades from kindergarten to sixth grade. The matching opportunity is in honor of the 40th anniversary of the VersaTiles offerings.
"The hand2mind team is thrilled to support DonorsChoose.org and teachers with this donation match program," said hand2mind CEO Rick Woldenberg. "Our mission is to empower educators and help students to reach their full potential. By making VersaTiles available in more classrooms, we continue its 40-year legacy of screen-free, engaging skills practice."
Last year, hand2mind matched donations for its Daily Match Fluency program following the product's launch.
