The Staff Advisory Council (S.A.C.) has launched a school supply drive for local teachers. The drive will focus on small items often found in teachers’ classrooms.

“This is typically the time when school teachers run out of supplies that the students initially brought with them at the beginning of the year, and they must replenish them out of their own pockets,” said Priscilla Sullivan, S.A.C. activities chair.

The drive, which began on Monday, March 4, will continue through Thursday, March 28. Donation locations are at the Stafford campus North and South buildings; George Washington Hall’s third floor; the Trinkle Hall rotunda; Eagle Village fourth floor; and the Facilities lobby.

Sullivan hopes faculty and staff members will donate one or two items from the following list:

  • Folders
  • Notebook paper
  • Printer paper
  • Dry erase markers
  • Post-its
  • Markers
  • Crayons
  • Ziploc bags
  • Tissues
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Pencils
