FISHERS, Ind. (March 1, 2022) – TCC, one of the nation’s largest Verizon Authorized Retailers, announces today it has awarded Patuxent High School in Lusby, MD, with a $1,000 gift card to Amazon as a part of the company’s ninth annual Teachers Rock Supply Giveaway.
In this year’s Teachers Rock Supply Giveaway, participating TCC stores delivered teacher appreciation boxes to 520 schools nationwide to benefit and support their educators. As a part of the giveaway’s Big Impact, TCC then selected 23 of those schools to receive $1,000 each to further support their biggest needs, which included Patuxent High School.
“All of us have been impacted by a teacher in one way or another, and we wanted to show our gratitude to the educators at these schools who invest an immense amount of time, energy and even money, to help their students succeed,” said Scott Moorehead, CEO of Round Room, parent company of TCC. “We look forward to seeing how each of these schools utilize the funding in order to provide optimal educational experiences for their students.”
The Teachers Rock Supply Giveaway is also the first event of TCC’s 10 Days of Giving, a company-wide celebration leading up to the company’s 10th annual School Rocks Backpack Giveaway, which has donated more than 1.2 million backpacks full of school supplies to students since 2013.
