Did you know that teachers spend an average of $500 annually on school supplies? Each year the Hampton Roads Corporate VOLUNTEER Council holds its Teacher's Closet supply drive to help to offset the cost of classroom supplies. Last year over 200 bags of school supplies were packed and provided to teachers across Hampton Roads and this year we had over 500 teachers sign up to receive a bag of supplies!
Companies can sign up to hold supply drives throughout the summer at the link below. At the end of the summer, they will meet and pack bags full of the needed supplies for teachers. Supplies should be dropped off on August 28 at Triple AAA 5366 Virginia Beach Blvd, Virginia Beach, VA 23462. Teacher pickup will be held at the same location on August 29 and 30.
