Twenty teachers across the U.S. awarded $1,000 to fulfill their largest classroom need
TCC, one of the nation’s largest Verizon Authorized Retailers, announces today it has awarded Alison Manion, a 2nd grade teacher at Sand Creek Elementary, with a $1,000 gift card to Amazon as a part of the company’s seventh annual Teachers Rock Supply Giveaway.
“When my classroom found out I won, we immediately started brainstorming how we wanted to spend the money,” said Alison. “My plan is to purchase books and flexible seating options for my students. We love to snuggle up with a good book and read!”
As a part of this year’s Big Impact, TCC selected 20 teachers across the U.S. and awarded them $1,000 each to further support their biggest needs in the classroom. Alison was one of the winners who said library supplies were her largest need.
“We are blessed with the opportunity to support teachers and students across the country,” said Scott Moorehead, CEO of Round Room LLC, parent company of TCC. “Teachers are one of our most precious resources and they spend an average of $480 out of their own pockets each year on classroom supplies. We hope this token of our appreciation for their hard work helps them to provide a brighter future for our young minds.”
