INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — WISH-TV teamed up with Teachers’ Treasures for the seventh annual Gr8 Paper Push.
Our organizations paired up to help collect school supplies for teachers in and around Indianapolis.
Every school year, teachers spend an average of $800-$1,200 of their own money on school supplies to support students who attend classes without the needed materials. Amid the pandemic, the need has never been greater.
With the donations of money and supplies, Teachers’ Treasures can hand out more than $320,000 in school supplies to teachers.
Our sponsors also helped out by providing convenient drop-off locations around central Indiana.
