Tucson Supplies Teachers, an annual supply drive run by Tucson Values Teachers, has raised $111,500 worth of gift cards for K-12 teachers in Southern Arizona to use for classroom materials and supplies.

Tucson Supplies Teachers is the largest school supply drive in the region and the only regional supply drive that directly invests in teachers and allows educators to shop for their specific classroom needs.

Tucson Supplies Teachers has delivered more than $1,100,000 worth of school supplies since its inception in 2009.

Katie Rogerson, Chief Operating Officer for Tucson Values Teachers, said, “Tucson Supplies Teachers is an important program for Tucson Values Teachers, providing Southern Arizona teachers with a $50 gift card to Office Depot/OfficeMax to offset the cost of classroom materials. Thanks to the commitment of our program sponsor Tucson Electric Power, as well as the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona and Desert Diamond Casinos & Entertainment, we’re able to fulfill the request of all teachers that registered in this year’s supply drive.”
