PTAs seek end-of-year donations for Teacher Supply Depot

Hamilton County Council of PTAs is seeking end-of-the-year donations for the Teacher Supply Depot in preparation for its next Teacher Shopping Day in February.

Hamilton County public school teachers, who are members of a Hamilton County public school PTA, can "shop for free" at the depot. The depot is located inside the former Mary Ann Garber School, 2225 Roanoke Ave.

Council officials said many teachers do not have a school supply budget, so they use their own money to buy students' supplies. The Supply Depot helps take the financial burden off teachers by helping them stock their classrooms.

All donations are tax deductible. To make a donation, send an email to For more information go to
