KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Knox County teachers have the opportunity to stock up for school supplies for their classrooms at no cost during the Teacher Supply Depot.

Great Schools Partnership joined with area businesses to make the opening possible, as part of its Thank a Teacher program.

"It's crazy! It's like Christmas in here. It's crazy just all these things and I'm crazy about picking up copy paper, just little things that make teachers happy," Cindy Awad said.

"It's literally such a rush to be able to get these children's books for free. I probably got like a hundred. It's so great to be able to build my library for the first year," Jordan Satterfield said.
