Donate school supplies during the first-ever back-to-school event at White River State Park



Indianapolis, Indiana – The new school year has begun, and many of the educators in Marion County are footing the bill for the supplies their students will need.

In order to lend a hand, the employees at White River State Park will organize their very first Back-to-School Supply Drive for Teachers’ Treasures. On Friday, the event will take place on the grounds of the Indiana State Museum from 5 to 8 o’clock in the evening.

More than 6,000 educators will benefit from the contributions that have been made to the Teachers’ Treasures organization, according to Alec Gray, who is the director of marketing and communications at the White River State Park.

“The most needed items that we had on our list were folders, notebooks, calculators, crayons, erasers, glue sticks, pencils, and pens,” Gray explained. “Being able to have the tools for success, I was so lucky to have what I had. I want to be a part of making sure that other kids that they’re in that same spot. So, I really appreciate that Teachers’ Treasure mission.”

During the event, there will be a variety of activities and vendors available for the donors to enjoy.

“We hope to make this an annual event,” Gray said.
