Tucson Supplies Teachers
7th annual Tucson Supplies Teachers becomes community wide effort
The 7th Annual Tucson Supplies Teachers supply drive kicks off in July, 2015. TVT has been able to grow Tucson Supplies Teachers into the largest community-wide supply drive in our region, with a total of over $663,000 in classroom supplies collected and distributed across Southern Arizona since inception.
This year, Tucson Values Teachers is looking to evolve 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.
In the past, we have partnered with area Walgreens to collect, sort, and distribute supplies. This year, rather than collecting supplies, we are working with Walgreens, Pima Federal Credit Union, the Tucson Association of REALTORS, and KVOA News 4 Tucson and Kristi's Kids 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 15% discount for all teachers (with a 25% discount on Walgreens brand items), 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.
