Thank you to everyone who participated in the Teacher's Closet event! We packed 200 tote bags to be delivered to teachers all over Hampton Roads. This is the second year of the event– this year we packed 150 more bags than last year, thanks to you!
Thank you to our chairs Dawn Young and Tiffany Hawken and to Atlantic Bay Mortgage for hosting the event again this year. Thank you to Kate Hamby for coming in this year to assist with the committing and leading the group next year!
Area companies banded together to collect school supplies to fill teacher closets for the coming school year. More than 9,700 items were collected and donated by ECPI, LoanCare, Frontier Technologies, Allfirst, Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group, AvalonBay Communities, Kaufman & Canoles, Aerotek, KPMG, OMG, TowneBank, Checkered Flag, and INIT.
Corporate employees helped to collect, sort, pack and deliver the items. Pictured from left to right are Darla Loflin, Cheryl Boyce, Tiffany Hawken, Melissa Reese, Vickie Waters, and Dargis Martinez.
