Supermarket giant donates $1,000 to Hambric teachers

Sam’s Club has awarded 20 teachers from Jane A. Hambric School $50 gift cards as part of the national retail warehouse club’s annual “The Teacher Rewards Program.”

Hambric was the only school in the El Paso area to receive the funds. They were chosen for their outstanding work as educators. The rewards program provides incentives for classroom teachers, librarians, SCEIs and counselors.

The gift cards will be used to buy any school items needed for the classroom. In addition, the school also will receive school supplies from the partnership of Walmart and SAM’s Club.

Through the Teacher Rewards Program, which has been around since 2009, more than 5,000 Walmart stores, distribution centers and Sam’s Club locations select one local public school, grades K-8 and provide reward cards for its teachers. Teachers can use the funds to purchase essential items for their classrooms such as paper, folders, binders, pencils, crayons and markers.
