A big engineering company in North Alabama is helping local schools.

Raytheon donated $30,000 to Free 2 Teach. That's a non-profit organization that provides free school supplies for teachers.

The group's founders say teachers often spend up to $1,000 on school supplies out of their own pockets, every year.

"Our goal is to make a difference in the education of the students in our community," said Nancy Jones with Free 2 Teach. "Together, we can help all of them."

Free 2 Teach aims to help up to 3,500 teachers in Madison County.
