Reese Witherspoon's clothing company announced Thursday it will be donating dresses to teachers as a thank you for their work educating children remotely during the coronavirus pandemic. 

"Dear Teachers: We want to say thank you. During quarantine, we see you working harder than ever to educate our children," the clothing line Draper James wrote in a post on Instagram. "To show our gratitude, Draper James would like to give teachers a free dress."

Draper James included a link in its page bio where teachers can fill out an application to receive their free dress. 

Schools and universities have been hit hard by the pandemic, which has forced classes to move online or be canceled altogether in some cases. Many districts have also announced they will ultimately be canceling all in-person learning through the end of the current school year. 

There have been numerous stories of teachers going above and beyond to help their students from afar, including one math teacher in Madison, S.D., who showed up to a student's porch to deliver a lesson in person.
