Nov. 16SRP Awards $15,000 Donation to Treasures 4 Teachers
On average, teachers in America spend $500 to $1,200 each year from their own pocket on school supplies for their students. Students cannot learn without essentials such as paper, pencils and other basic school supplies. Treasures 4 Teachers (T4T) bridges the gap between the need for school supplies and available resources in the community. That's why Salt River Project is proud to continue its support for T4T with a $10,000 donation and an additional $5,000 in in-kind supplies.
