For the seventh year in a row, Vallejo’s teachers will distribute free supplies and books to local students.
Teachers will give away notebooks, coloring pencils, free bags of pens, pencils, erasers, bookmarks, and crayons during the annual Helping Hands Schools Supply Outreach, hosted by the Vallejo Education Association.
The association is the union representing Vallejo City Unified School District teachers.
“As educators, we understand and appreciate that investing in our students and schools means investing in our community’s future,” said Sheila Gradwohl, president of the Vallejo Education Association, in a press release. “We are proud of this tradition that’s about giving back and providing extra help by giving school supplies to help our kids succeed in our classrooms.”
