TCC donating school supply packs to teachers


In an effort to replenish decreasing classroom supplies, TCC is donating school supply packs to 5,000 teachers across the country through its annual Teachers Rock Supply Giveaway.

Sedalia residents can call their local participating TCC store to nominate their favorite area teacher(s). A list of participating stores and phone numbers is available at tccrocks.com/locations. Stores with the pencil icon are accepting nominations. Voting runs through Friday, Feb. 12.

After the votes are tallied, more than 500 participating TCC stores across the U.S. will reveal the 10 winning local teachers who will receive their supply packs during the week of Feb. 21. The packages — valued at $50 each — will be filled with glue, pencils, pens, markers, erasers, paper, tissue boxes and more. In 2015, TCC donated 3,500 supply packs to teachers across the country.

TCC makes ongoing investments in corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives through its Culture of Good program. In 2015, its efforts included donating $1 million to Riley Hospital for Children, providing 100,000 backpacks full of school supplies to children, giving supply packs to 3,500 teachers, and contributing $100,000 in grants to organizations focused on improving the environment.
