Donations help V.I. teachers

Balbariella Lopez, a sixth-grade teacher at the Juanita Gardine K-8 School, received classroom supplies from two St. Croix nonprofits — Virgin Islands Leaders For Change and V.I. Arts & Media Foundations Inc.

Some St. Croix teachers have one less thing to worry about, as two non-profit groups have donated supplies to their classrooms.

Representatives from the Virgin Islands Leaders For Change and V.I. Arts and Media Foundation this week dropped off more than $700 of classroom supplies to two teachers at each of the island’s 11 public schools.
