INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Each year, teachers spend an average of $500 to $1,000 of their own money on school supplies to support students who attend classes without the needed materials.
For the fifth year, WISH-TV is teaming up with Teachers’ Treasures, a free store for teachers, for the Gr8 Paper Push.

Area businesses are encouraged to sign up and begin collecting school supplies. Then, on Aug. 7, WISH-TV News 8 anchors Anthony Calhoun, Brooke Martin, Mike Barz and Ashley Brown will visit participating businesses to collect donated supplies.
Not a business but still want to help teachers? School supply donations may be dropped off at WISH-TV, any Financial Center First Credit Union branch, or area Metro by T-Mobile stores.
