The group’s administrators say teachers want to provide not only an education, but also whatever students need to succeed in school.

So far, 14 counties are taking part, but organizers are looking for more volunteers.

The drive will run from January 3rd through the 17th.

For more information contact Allison Slone, the administrator of Kentucky Teachers In The Know and a special education teacher for the Rowan County School District through email at or on Facebook
