Two UL groups are hosting a classroom supply drive to help new teachers get ready for school.

The drive is hosted by the UL Lafayette Educators Rising Collegiate Chapter and the College of Education Alumni Chapter.

“Teachers are the heartbeat of education, and classrooms can be rich and bustling learning environments that inspire creativity, collaboration, and growth. Please drop off classroom supplies to support new teachers from UL Lafayette’s educator preparation programs as they enter the classroom,” a release states.
