KNOXVILLE (WATE) – The Knox County Schools/PTA Teacher Supply Depot will open its doors for the first time this school year on Saturday.
Teachers and teaching assistants will have the opportunity to shop for free classroom supplies from 7 a.m. to noon. School nurses are also invited to shop for supplies.
The Teacher Supply Depot provides teachers and others with new and used classroom materials at no charge. The depot is driven solely by donations.
In its 14 years of service, the Teacher Supply Depot has benefited more than 10,000 Knox County Schools’ professionals and has provided an estimated $2.6 million worth of materials made possible through the support of local businesses and community members.
Located at 709 N. Cedar Bluff Rd. in the former Cedar Bluff Intermediate School, the Teacher Supply Depot is a joint venture of the Knox County Council PTA, Knox County Education Association and Knox County Schools.
One more Teacher Supply depot shopping day is scheduled for May 28.
