Our first Community Event of the year is Teachers Rock. This event is all about giving back and saying thanks to teachers. With the constant changes over the last two years that teachers have dealt with, it’s especially important to show our appreciation for their hard work and dedication to educating their students.
TCC stores across the country will donate care kits filled with supplies and treats to local schools from February 14 – 18. These kits contain goodies like coffee pods, hot cocoa mix and marshmallows, popcorn, granola bars, tissues, pens, sticky notes, dry erase markers, hand sanitizer, and more.
We’ll also be putting 20 golden tickets into the care kits our stores deliver. The 20 lucky schools who have a ticket in their kit will get a $1,000 Amazon gift card on top of their supplies and snacks.
Teachers spend hundreds of dollars out of their own pockets on school supplies. We hold this event partway through the school year because supplies are often running low at this time.
10 Days of Giving
Teachers Rock is also the first event of our 10 Days of Giving, our celebration leading up to our 10th annual School Rocks Backpack Giveaway. Participating TCC stores will be performing 10 kind acts of giving throughout the year. Learn more about our other days of giving here.
Is there a teacher in your life? Reach out to them and show your appreciation.
Take a look at some pictures from this year’s event!

I’m a fist year Special Ed Teacher at Centralia Middle school and have been a Verizon customer for years! Any chance to support my students is great! Thank you
Thanks for commenting, Laurie! We are so appreciative of you and the important work you do!
That’s wonderful that you reach out to the community and do so much. Thank you. Our teachers have had a rough couple of years and are stretched to the max. We try to provide a little extra to out students to try to make learning more fun. So, again , thank you.
How do we nominate a teacher or school?
