PIASC members delivered their donations to Lithographix, Inc., our 30th Annual Surplus Drive Host, two days before the actual distribution day. The amount of donations exceeded everyone's expectations: 90 pallets of paper and office supplies were nicely organized by Lithographix, Inc. staff. The large variety of paper received included white and colored text, cover stock, large sheets, letter size sheets, construction paper, envelopes, and more. Each year the variety of paper changes depending on donations received; however, teachers appreciate all donations. Click here to view a thank you note we received.
Instructors arrived with trucks, carts, and lots of muscle power well before 8:30 a.m. to enjoy a plant tour of Lithographix, Inc., and a hot cup of coffee and donuts with other teachers and staff. Then the fun began! The distribution of paper started at around 9:15 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.; however, several teachers returned on Monday for more paper—as well as a few teachers that had not been able to attend on Saturday.
Schools benefiting from PIASC members generosity include:
Aspire Firestone Gateway Academy
San Jose Charter Academy
