Walmart employees with carts filled with donations

CORE Store logoThe CORE (Classroom Resources for Education) Store provides the opportunity for every Plano ISD student to have the supplies required for success in school by giving teachers an opportunity to shop for school supplies that have been donated by community groups, corporations and individuals. Thanks to our generous community, and just in time for North Texas Giving Day, Thursday, September 14, the CORE Store begins its second year of operation providing school supplies to teachers at no cost. Local businesses and organizations have generously supported the store in this new school year. Supplies have been received from Altair Global, Sewell Mini of Plano, Infinitude Creative Group, Cornwell Jackson Certified Public Accountants, United Methodist Church Custer Road, Walmart and CapitalOne just to name a few. Kroger recently donated $32,000 in supplies. Donations to the store are accepted year round every Tuesday, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. The store is located at 3900 W. 15th Street, Suite 102 in space donated by Medical City Plano.
