NASHVILLE, Tenn. – For a tenth season, the Tennessee Titans will partner with LP on Saturday, August 9th for the LP PENCIL Box School Supply Drive benefiting Metro Nashville students.
LP PENCIL Box, a collaborative venture between PENCIL Foundation and LP Building Products, offers Metro teachers the opportunity to shop free twice per year for classroom school supplies, benefiting Nashville's most needy school children. Since its inception in 2005, over $4 million worth of school supplies has been distributed to students whose families cannot afford to purchase them.
Volunteers from PENCIL Foundation and LP Building Products will collect donated items from fans at the seven collection drop-off locations outside LP Field with the collection time starting at 5:00 pm and ending 30 minutes after kickoff at 7:30 pm. Fans are encouraged to bring the following most-needed items:
• Pencil Boxes
• Notebook Paper
• Primary Tablets
• Paper Towels
• Construction Paper
• Art Supplies
• Classroom Cleaning Supplies
"The Titans are very excited to once again partner with LP's effort to provide school supplies for Nashville's less fortunate students," said Don MacLachlan, Titans EVP of Administration and Facilities. "LP has an incredible desire and very generous history of aiding many charitable endeavors throughout the country. We are proud to join them in our annual game day drive for the LP PENCIL Box. Since moving to Tennessee our fans have always responded to our charitable drives in a most gracious manner, proving once again why they are the best fans in the NFL!"
