Supply Drive: FUSD + Charter Schools!

This year, for the first time, the Flagstaff Chamber is teaming up with Suddenlink, Walmart, Coke, and others to bring a Teacher Supply Drive to our community!

Here's how it works. 

There will be volunteers collecting donated school supplies at the Huntington WalMart Supercenter on the times and dates below. We are going to collect as many supplies as we can get our hands on and then distribute them to FUSD as well as private and public charter schools by the end of September.

The goal is to decrease (or eliminate) the substantial amount that teachers have to pay each year, out of their own pockets, for basic classroom supplies. Most teachers spend at least $500 every year on these supplies. Many are forced to spend more than that.

You can donate supplies outside the WalMart at 2601 E Huntington Drive.

August 10-12 from 10am to 6pm
August 17 from 5 to 9pm
August 18 & 19 from 10am to 6pm

Supplies that we're looking for:
  • Copy paper, white and colored
  • Pencils
  • Ink pens
  • Sticky notes
  • Glue sticks
  • Dry erase markers
  • White out
  • Sharpie pens
  • Tissues

Even if you can't make it to the supply drive, please encourage those you know to participate!

We're encouraging businesses to collect from their employees, vendors, and customers to drop off collected supplies on any of the above dates!
