Shopping at LP PENCIL Box
It is estimated that teachers leave with $250 worth of supplies
each shopping trip. Available items will vary as the store is stocked by donations. We serve all 5,050 Metro teachers
and want to make sure everyone gets the same opportunity so limit signs are placed on items according to how many are in stock. Supplies are for the classroom and students only
- not for personal use!
In the basic supply room, teachers can choose 40 items
. Supplies include backpacks, pencils, paper, crayons, markers, books, and more. In the Green Room,
teachers can pick up 40 additional items, which include gently used office supplies or odds and ends like carpet squares, fabric samples, binders, magazines, containers, and other hidden treasures.
