(Le Mars) — In it’s eighth year, the TCC Teachers Rock promotion is designed to give a boost to deserving teachers with $1,000 worth of school supplies. Sherri Bauman, manager of TCC Verizon Wireless in Le Mars, explains.
In years past this has been done with 10 different care packages going to individual classrooms. This year, because the program is nationwide and a lot of teachers aren’t able to meet with their kids in person, Sherri says the care package distribution plan has changed.
Since schools are in session locally, the idea is that the winning school receives this care package as a whole and can then decide how to divide it up when it arrives the week of February 15th.
In addition to the school supplies this year, Sherri said that TCC is adding another prize to the nationwide contest.
To vote for your school online you can access the poll on the facebook group “Sherri’s Cell Phone Group – LeMars IA” or visit the store on the corner of business highway 75 and 3 across from Subway to drop a school name in the bucket. Votes need to be in Friday, January 29th.
TCC’s Teachers Rock giveaway is part of the nationwide “TCC Gives” campaign, which also executes the Backpack Program and works with non-profits to provide grant funding.
