Tucson Supplies Teachers
8th annual Tucson Supplies Teachers becomes community wide effort
The 8th Annual Tucson Supplies Teachers supply drive kicks off in July 2016. TVT has been able to grow Tucson Supplies Teachers into the largest community-wide supply drive in our region, with a total of over $770,800 in classroom supplies collected and distributed across Southern Arizona since inception.
In 2015, Tucson Values Teachers evolved the Tucson Supplies Teachers supply drive to include innovative solutions that streamline the collection and distribution of supplies, conserve financial and operational resources, and most importantly, better serve the needs of our teachers. We'll continue with these improvements this year by working with Pima Federal Credit Union and other community partners to provide gift cards for teachers to purchase the supplies that meet their specific classroom needs.
Once again, we are able to leverage the cash donations to Tucson Values Teachers for school supplies through our partnership with Walgreens. Walgreens will provide a 10% discount for all teachers, and school supplies at area Walgreens locations will be greatly discounted. This means that teachers can get the supplies they need when they need them.
TEACHERS NEED OUR SUPPORT NOW MORE THAN EVER, AND YOU CAN HELP!
ONLINE DONATIONS can be made at www.TucsonValuesTeachers.org. All funds donated during July 2015 will go to purchase teacher gift cards for school supplies.
