Classroom supplies include:
- Copier Paper

- Hand Sanitizer and Soap
- Paper Towels
- Dry Erase Markers
- Facial Tissues
- Sandwich Bags

Teachers received items on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies lasted.
“Every year it seems as if teachers need more supplies for their classrooms and fewer dollars to spend on those items,” says Glynn Jenkins, director of communications for Kroger’s Atlanta Division. “This event is designed to provide our educators with some of the basic classroom items they need to help instruct our children.”
Kroger’s “Earning Plus Learning” program contributes up to $500,000 to elementary and middle schools, as well as graduating high school seniors annually. To learn more about Kroger’s “Earning Plus Learning” program, please visit www.krogerearningpluslearning.com
