During the month of August, Oklahoma City Metro REALTORS® are being asked to join the Tool for Schools effort by donating supplies or make a donation. Because of budget cuts to school supplies, they are specifically asking for donations of copy paper, pencils, ink pens, dry erase markers, Kleenex, and other similar items. Donations can be taken to OKCMAR located at 3131 NW Expressway.
Tools for Schools is important because our schools need our help. Nine out of 10 Oklahoma City Public Schools students live in poverty and nearly 1,900 students are considered homeless. Over 13,000 students speak English as a second language and more than 40 different languages are spoken across the district.
