Clarksville Firefighters Local #3180 and Servpro of Montgomery County donate pallet of copy paper to Clarksville-Montgomery County Teachers Warehouse

 

Clarksville, TN – Clarksville Firefighters Local #3180 and Servpro of Montgomery County teamed together to make a donation to the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System’s Teachers Warehouse. The donation of a pallet of copy paper fills a constant need for area teachers.

“Through our contacts with Mrs. Candy Johnson we learned a lot about the Teachers Warehouse. We come to find out that one of the things that they’re always in need of, and they’re really hurting for is copy paper,” said David Kirkland, President of Clarksville Firefighters Local #3180. “I guess it’s just because of the fact that the classrooms have become much more automated; and there a lot more stuff that has to be run off, and copied.”
