Supply a Teacher tweaks the traditional student supply collection drive

Image

Acquiring all the necessary supplies for the upcoming school year isn’t getting any cheaper, but it’s especially expensive for teachers—to the tune of an average $500 out of their own pockets, according to Time.com. Which is why Youth Dance Academy and marketing company Live to Give Group will tweak the traditional student supply collection drive with Supply a Teacher. Businesses like Findlay Volkswagen, Sunrise Coffee and Real Results Fitness will accept whiteboard markers, construction paper and other classroom essentials—full supply and drop-off-site lists can be found at livetogivegroup.com/calendar—until July 26. Supply kits will be distributed to credentialed teachers on July 29 at Galleria mall.
