Dear Friends in the Educational Community,

Here at Becker’s, our customers are always at the forefront of everything we do.  In normal times, we are busy providing schools, child care centers, and parents with the supplies, furniture, and equipment needed to engage and educate our youngest learners.  In uncertain times such as now, while we are all impacted by the Covid-19 outbreak, the children are still our priority.  The challenges are different, and we are meeting them with the same courage and creativity that the Becker Family has demonstrated during the last 92 years in business.

As we work to continue serving customers, shipping orders, and protecting our employees, we are continuously developing and posting free resources, so school educators and parent educators can continue your vital work of keeping children stimulated, actively involved, and happy.

Of course, our customer service specialists are ready for your online or telephone orders, should you want to take advantage of this time to explore and shop for the upcoming back-to-school season. Our dedicated distribution center workers are shipping products each day—even with the unprecedented challenges.

We are also now offering personal protective equipment (PPE) for your classrooms. 

Let us know what else we can do to help you at this time.  As always, you can talk with us at 800-523-1490.  We will get through this together, as we always have.

George J. Becker
President and CEO
