PIASC members delivered their donations to Advantage, Inc., our 31st Annual Surplus Drive Host, two days before the actual distribution day. Over 60 pallets of paper and office supplies were nicely organized by Advantage, 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.
Instructors arrived with trucks, carts, and lots of muscle power well before 8:30 a.m. to enjoy a plant tour of Advantage, 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 all the paper was gone!
Schools benefiting from PIASC members generosity include:
Bernardo Yorba Middle School
Roosevelt Middle School
