Teacher Supply Depot To Open January 26
The Teacher Supply Depot will be open Tuesday, January 26, from 4 to 7 p.m. in Medical Office Building No. 2 at Laughlin Memorial Hospital. Greeneville and Greene County public school teachers are invited to shop the depot for free school supplies on a first-come, first-served basis. All teachers must bring proper school identification to enter the depot. Due to limited space and in an effort to serve as many teachers as possible, it is requested that teachers visit the depot unaccompanied.
