Four Peaks holding drive for teacher supplies
Tempe’s Four Peaks Brewing Company is partnering with Smashburger and Wist Office Products to present its Four Peaks for Teachers campaign that provides Valley teachers with free school supplies.
Valley-wide Smashburger locations will collect cash donations from customers through July 25 and sell raffle tickets for prizes such as Smashburgers for a year. For every $5 donation made at any of its three locations, Four Peaks gives customers a chance to win a beer dinner and tour for eight people at the original Four Peaks Brewery on Eighth Street in Tempe.
Four Peaks for Teachers provides teachers with complimentary classroom supplies to minimize their need to go out of pocket for such items. The campaign has a goal for the 2014 school year to benefit 1,500 Valley teachers with supplies such as dry erase markers, reams of paper, tissues, pencils, pens, markers and sanitary wipes. According to a statement from Four Peaks, the program supported 1,300 teachers last year during its inaugural drive.
Teachers who want to participate can visit any Four Peaks or Smashburger location through Saturday, July 19, with their school ID and pick up a voucher good for one teacher supplies kit that will be distributed at designated Four Peaks locations starting July 21 while supplies last.
