ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Ann Arbor nonprofit SCRAP Box will give away supply packs Aug. 24 to Ann Arbor teachers from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for its Teacher Appreciation Day.

The first 20 tax-exempt eligible teachers to show their ID will receive a free supply pack full of construction paper, notebooks, binders, writing utensils, erasers, crayons, paper clips and other classroom and office supplies. 

“We have a long history of supporting our local educators at SCRAP. We want to continue to be a driving force of creativity and reuse on-site and in the classroom,” said Claire Tyra, SCRAP Box director. “We value our teachers and schools so much, this is just one way we can give back.”
