Teachers hold fundraiser for bare essentials

STEVENSON, AL (WAFF) -

Teachers often need extra money for school supplies, but one group of first grade teachers in Stevenson say they need the bare essentials.  

They need new desks for students so they thought of a new way to get them. They're holding a barbeque fundraiser.

The desks the children at Stevenson Elementary school may very well be the ones their parents used when they were little. After all, they're thirty years old.

So the group of first grade teachers at the school took it upon themselves to think of a way to raise $9,000 to get them replaced.

The barbeque fundraiser will be held this Tuesday. For a $10 plate people will get some barbeque chicken with all the fixings. Pickup will be from 3 to 6 p.m.

Teachers hope this fundraiser will eventually make for better students.

"It will mean a lot. It will help them be more organized, independent, clean, and ready to learn," said first grade teacher Natalie Beaird.

If you would like to get one or make a donation, you can email Natalie Beaird.
