Amerigroup hosts school supply drive for educators

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Amerigroup hosted a school supply drive for educators Wednesday.

The Teachers Depot was an opportunity for Amerigroup to show appreciation to educators in the school district and partners in the community.

Teachers came to the event which was held at South Columbus Elementary School to pick out items, enjoy music, and have a good time knowing they are appreciated.

"Today's event was very important for Amerigroup because we believe in making sure we support our educators. We're very involved with our Title 1 school in our school district, so it is very important that we show our partnership consistently throughout the state," says Lauren Chambers, marketing account manager for Amerigroup.

Teachers sometimes have to pay out of pocket for their supplies, therefore, Amerigroup wanted to lighten the load.
