Greensboro Grasshoppers Donate $10,000 to Teacher Supply Warehouse

Greensboro, N.C. ­ School bells ring and the Hoppers are not looking for
baseball players; instead the focus is on contributing inventory of pens,
scissors, paper, paper clips, etc., to the Teacher Supply Warehouse. The
Greensboro Grasshoppers donated $10,000 to the Guilford Education Alliance
to be used for supplies at the Teacher Supply Warehouse, Hoppers President
and General Manager Donald Moore announced Wednesday.

The Guilford Education Alliance mission of quality education for all county
residents becomes a reality through the Teacher Supply Warehouse. Over 170
teachers visit the warehouse, shopping for all the materials needed during
their school year.

We are happy to help our local teachers and students with this donation,
said Greensboro Grasshoppers President and General Manager Donald Moore.
This adds to our long-term commitment to the children of Guilford County.

The donated school supplies were purchased at the Walmart store on S.
Elm/Eugene Street. Store manager, John Brewer, coordinated the $10,000
spend with representatives from the Guilford Education Alliance.

At Walmart we are proud to support communities in which we live and work.
We know of no greater mission than that of your organization to provide
supplies for your great teachers and students of the community, said store
manager, John Brewer. Thanks to the Greensboro Grasshoppers for selecting
our store and letting our team help support their work with the Guilford
Education Alliance.

The Grasshoppers are proud to partner with Guilford County Education
Alliance and Walmart. However, this is not the first time the Greensboro
Grasshoppers have stepped outside the ballpark to provide aid to the
community.
