The first ever Tools for School drive along with local PODS® Moving & Storage, Cumulus Media and General Mills has awarded a fourth grade class at Rio Del Norte school as the winner of school supplies that were collected over the course of a month.
The drive was an effort to provide local classrooms with much needed school supplies for the upcoming year. Individual classrooms were nominated for the chance to receive a full school years’ worth of supplies.
“School supplies are such a critical piece to an education, and we are just delighted to help the class at Rio Del Norte get these much-needed school supplies, and we look forward to working with the radio stations of Cumulus for this to be an every year drive.” says Steve Yapp, owner of local PODS® Moving & Storage.
Yapp and the PODS team donated $1,000 worth of school supplies toward the drive as well.
