Pope John Elementary School is one of 34 schools to receive school supply packs from Round Room LLC, the nation’s largest Verizon Authorized Retailer.
All 542 Round Room LLC TCC stores donated supply packs to more than 5,500 teachers across the United States as part of the company’s seventh annual Teachers Rock Supply Giveaway during the week of Feb. 10. This giveaway was created to help ensure classrooms are well stocked at the start of the new year. Since 2014, TCC has donated more than 35,000 supply packs to teachers across the country.
Each participating TCC store partnered with a local school to donate supply packs valued at $77 each. These packs include pencils, pens, dry erase markers, erasers, glue sticks, paper, tissue boxes, sticky notes and more.
“The U.S. Department of Education reports that teachers spend an average of $480 out of their own pockets to pay for school supplies each year,” said Scott Moorehead, CEO of Round Room, parent company of TCC. “It’s such an honor to be able to give back to educators across the country for the seventh year running. We want to show our deep appreciation for their hard work, and our Teachers Rock Supply Giveaway has been a great way to demonstrate how much we care.”
