The Oklahoma City-based mail supply company Comtech and the Oklahoma City Thunder are leading a supply drive until November 7 to help stock the Teacher’s Warehouse at the Foundation for Oklahoma City Public Schools.
Every year the warehouse provides much needed supplies to teachers throughout Oklahoma City Schools preventing teacher’s from spending their money on paper and pencils for students.
Supplies can be dropped off at Comtech, 117 E Hill Street, or other locations that can be found by calling 843-3185.
The grand finale to the supply drive will be the Thunder’s home game on Nov. 7 against the Boston Celtics. Fans who drop off school supplies at the entrances to the Oklahoma Ford Center will be entered to win a number of prizes including autographed memorabilia.
