Build Benld is offering a helping hand this month by donating $1000 to the Ben-Gil Elementary teachers. Accepting the donation on behalf of the teachers was Elementary Principal Angela Sandretto.
“About ninety percent of teachers purchase classroom supplies with their own money”, said Lynn Shehorn. “The average teacher spends about $470 each year just picking up things like pencils, paper, note pads, crayons and other needed supplies for students.”
Norm Emmons added that, “Although school may be out of session right now, we (Build Benld) are hoping this donation will help teachers have a successful start of their new school year.”
