The Teacher Supply Depot is a collection center, and warehouse of donated new and used classroom materials provided free of charge for teachers, their assistants, and other school personnel in the Knox County Schools. The Depot is open four times each school year to provide educators with an opportunity to get materials and supplies for classroom needs.

Classroom materials are needed each time teachers visit the Teacher Supply Depot. Please help reduce a teacher’s out-of-pocket expenses by donating much needed supplies and/or making a monetary donation to purchase supplies.

Below are just a few of the items teachers choose each time the Depot is open.  For more ideas, download the Depot Wish List.  If you have items you think might be usable, call the Teacher Supply Depot (865-470-0750).  Remember, your donation is tax-deductible!
