The Teacher Supply Depot is a county-wide community PTA providing classroom supplies to teachers who have joined the PTA at their school or have joined the Depot Community PTA.

The county council asks that each local unit adopt the Depot Community PTA as a community service project. Local units are encouraged to provide at least one volunteer on each opening day as a service to Hamilton County Schools and our wonderful teachers.
