San Joaquin County Classrooms Outfitted with Supplies

Large donation from The Home Depot and Amazon benefits teachers and students across the county

On Aug. 28, educators from across the county headed to the San Joaquin County Office of Education (SJCOE) campus to pick up school supplies by the pallet-full. The event was coordinated by the SJCOE to distribute a large donation from The Home Depot and Amazon. Supplies included pens, mechanical pencils, markers, composition books, calculators, dividers, rulers, report covers, and more.  

 

"We are grateful for these generous donations. We're holding this event to celebrate how our partners in the business community are giving back and supporting local schools," SJCOE Associate Superintendent of Student Programs and Services Troy Brown said. "Classroom budgets are always tight, and these supplies will be a welcome surprise for teachers and students just starting out the new school year."

 

The SJCOE partners with the business community and coordinates with school districts to provide donations where they are needed most. Amazon.com provides donations to the SJCOE throughout the year. The pickup was scheduled to distribute a recent large donation from The Home Depot that added more than 100 pallets worth of donated school supplies.  The SJCOE would like to thank The Home Depot and Amazon for this generous donation and their continued support of our county’s educators and students. We would also like to thank the Discovery ChalleNGe Academy cadets, district superintendents, principals, teachers, and staff, who worked together to load the pallets and boxes.
