Help Supply Tucson's Teachers

Posted By on Thu, Jul 26, 2012 at 9:00 AM

It's no secret that many teachers in the U.S. are severely underpaid. So it's a shame when they have to spend money out of pocket to pay for supplies for their classrooms.

However, Tucson Supplies Teachers, is striving to alleviate some of the financial burden for Southern Arizona teachers. The program is spearheaded by Tucson Values Teachers, who work in conjunction with Walgreens stores in Pima County, Sierra Vista and Nogales.

From July 30 to August 13, you can drop off school supplies at your nearby Walgreens and give teachers some of the resources they need to educate Southern Arizona's students.

The goal is to collect $110,000 in supplies that will be donated to all public, private and charter schools in the Southern Arizona region. For a complete list of the participating Walgreens, visit the Tucson Values Teachers website.
