Southwest Georgia teachers now have a place to go if they're looking for free school supplies for their classrooms.

Teacher's Harvest is open in Valdosta Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and teachers in the thirty counties covered by Second Harvest are allowed to go twice a month to get supplies.

The coordinator told FOX 31 teachers can get things like glue sticks, pencils, pens, books, and other items their students may need. The coordinator, Hannah Peverill, says there's a need for this in South Georgia. She says many kids right now go to bed hungry at night and if they can't afford food, they certainly can't afford all the needed school supplies.

Peverill also wants people to know that Teacher's Harvest is made possible by the donations they receive.
