Fulton Homes and Fulton Ranch Towne Center Join Forces to Make a Difference for Valley Educators
As the summer months start to dwindle, Valley teachers face the challenge of providing sufficient school supplies purchased from their own pockets to ensure a successful school year for their students. This year, Fulton Homes and RED Development’s Fulton Ranch Towne Center are teaming up for the Fulton Homes S.O.S “Save Our Supplies” Drive for Teachers, July 19 through August 2, to encourage parents and community members to donate school supplies for Chandler Unified School District teachers for the 2010-2011 school year. Fulton Ranch Towne Center is located near Ocotillo Road and Arizona Avenue in Chandler.
The Fulton Homes S.O.S Drive for Teachers kicks off July 19th, 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., outside of the Staples at Fulton Ranch Towne Center. KNIX Radio will be outside of Staples giving away Arizona Diamondback and local water park tickets to community members who buy and donate school supplies. Items needed are reams of white and colored copy paper, dry erase markers, poster board, folders and more. Donators who purchase their supplies exclusively at Staples have the chance win a trip for two to Nashville, TN., to see George Straight and Reba McEntire live in concert!
As an added bonus, whenever KNIX Radio is on-site during the S.O.S. campaign, Fulton Ranch Towne Center shoppers who donate $25 or more in school supplies (Must show receipt of purchase) will also receive a certificate valued at $1,000 towards the purchase of a new Fulton Home, including Fulton Homes Design Center options.
“It is imperative that teachers have the tools they need to give every child the opportunity to reach their full potential in the class room,” remarked Douglas Fulton, CEO of Tempe-based homebuilder Fulton Homes. “Everyone deserves an education, and we are incredibly proud that the S.O.S Drive will help some very deserving teachers start the school year off right with some of the tools they need for their students to succeed.”
During the campaign, donators can drop off supplies in the Fulton Homes S.O.S Drive labeled bins at Fulton Ranch Towne Centers’ Staples, Old Chicago and The Play Factory. KNIX Radio will be visiting the shopping center at the close of the campaign for a live event when Chandler Unified School District teachers come to pick up their supplies.
“I want to invite the Chandler community to come out to Fulton Ranch Towne Center to support the Fulton Homes S.O.S Drive,” said Stephanie B. Case, Marketing Director for the shopping center. “The campaign is an innovative way to raise awareness for Valley educators need for school supplies. Fulton Ranch Towne Center is proud to work with Fulton Homes to support such an important cause.”
