The Women Of Quail Creek’s (TWOQC’s) Community Outreach Committee “showered” 23 teachers at Sahuarita Elementary School with construction paper, dry-erase supplies, scissors, markers, copy paper, construction paper, and many other items that they routinely use throughout the school year. Most educators purchase these essential items using personal funds. Each teacher got a Starbucks gift card, too.

As part of the festivities, there was a door prize drawing when about 10 lucky teachers got Walmart gift cards, a pail with 100 crayons, dry-erase board sets, and other specialty items, with the grand prize being a laminator. The teachers were treated to cake and Arnold Palmers at the end of the shower.

The teachers expressed their appreciation for the generosity of TWOQC members and Quail Creek residents who made the shower possible.
