White and colored copy paper, pencils, pens, glue sticks, colored pencils, Kleenex and disinfecting wipes are just a few of the materials Flagstaff teachers are asking for during this year’s Teacher’s Supply Drive.
This year, Coconino Community College will be participating in the “Pack a Crate Challenge” to help donate classroom supplies to the Greater Flagstaff Schools (K-12th grade) and all are asked to help donate supplies at the front entrance of either the Lone Tree or Fourth Street Campuses.
The Greater Flagstaff Chamber of Commerce and Suddenlink are conducting their fourth community-wide drive. The Chamber also helps the Business Donor Program in which Chamber members can conduct a drive in offices, donate specific items or match cash donations. Last year, the supply drive gathered more than $40,000 in supplies and more than 100 volunteers participated in the drive and distribution.
The drop-off dates for collected items are Wednesday, Aug. 5 – Saturday, Aug. 8 at the Flagstaff Walmart or Sam’s Club locations. From Aug. 5-7, people can drop off their donations from 1 – 7 p.m. and on Saturday, Aug. 8, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
