Tucson Values Teachers, Walgreens, Tucson Association of REALTORS®, Pima Federal Credit Union, Cox Communications and KVOA News 4 Tucson’s Kristi’s Kids Partner on Largest Regional School Supply Drive
TUCSON, Ariz. (August 4, 2014) – Tucson Values Teachers (TVT) and Walgreens combined forces with the Tucson Association of REALTORS®, Pima Federal Credit Union and KVOA News 4 Tucson’s Kristi’s Kids, as well as a host of other community partners in sponsoring Tucson Supplies Teachers, Southern Arizona’s largest school supply drive. The drive runs from August 3 — 17.
The public can donate supplies at any Walgreens in Southern Arizona or at Wendy’s and Cox Communications locations in Tucson. Donations made through www.tucsonvaluesteachers.org will be matched – dollar for dollar – through TVT and Walgreens. School supplies will be distributed to schools across the region.
Tucson Supplies Teachers is the 6th annual school supply drive sponsored by TVT, Walgreens and the Community Finance Corporation. The partners are pleased to join forces again this year with the Tucson Association of REALTORS®, KVOA News 4 Tucson’s Kristi’s Kids, and Pima Federal Credit Union to create a single, community-wide supply drive. Additional 2014 supporters include Raytheon, Cox Communications, Tucson Young Professionals, Wendy’s, Peter Piper Pizza, McDonalds, and The Westin La Paloma.
“Over $192,000 in school supplies were raised last year, bringing the overall total of supplies raised since inception to nearly a half million dollars. We hope to meet or beat that goal in 2014,” said Katie Rogerson, interim executive director of TVT. “It’s clear to me that the continuing success of Tucson Supplies Teachers comes from the strength of our many community partners, and from individuals in our community who step up to support teachers and students. The supply drive grows every year, which is important because so does the need.”

That is the truth.
I went to pick up my kids yesterday and they didn’t want to leave.
And it is SO much easier for them to settle down for bed after they’ve been playing all day.
The happiest grins as they play with the awesome counselors, and at dinner we get to hear about the games, riddles, and, as Lincoln says, “activities I have almost mastered”. Hilarious.
