TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - A group called Tucson Values Teachers had their own back-to-school drive leading up to the start of classes and soon they will find out just how far they can stretch every donation. In 2013 the group raised $192,000 for local schools and this year they are hoping to beat that goal. 

Later this month they will sort and send supplies they have gathered to local schools, but those supplies can run out fast and that is where the public comes in.  

Katie Rogerson, with Tucson Values Teachers say many teachers will turn to us before the end of the school year, as school funding runs out and with more schools closed, teachers have to cover more students in their classrooms.  

According to the groups survey, the average teacher spends more than a $1,000 of their own money every year, to make sure they stay stocked up for the school year. 

The survey also shows many teachers did not become teachers for the money, and that nearly a third of the teachers surveyed have other jobs to make ends meet. So for those who would like good teachers to stay, they need a little extra support.  

One way to do that is to donate. Here is a list of items teachers are looking for this year - 

2” Notebook Binder, 

Highlighters

3 Ring Binders,

Kleenex

3 x 5 Note Cards,

Lined Notebook Paper

Colored Pencils,

Markers

Construction Paper,

Paper Clips

Copy Paper, 

No. 2 Pencils

Crayons,

Pens

Dry Erase Markers,

Printer Paper

Erasers,

Scissors (both safety and regular)

Folders, 

Spiral Notebooks

Glue and Glue Sticks,

Tape
