Local Realtors are helping children prepare for the upcoming school year.

The Torgerson Team at Keller Williams Realty, which includes Mary Beth and Nathan Torgerson, announced that they would be sponsoring their second annual Back To School School Supply Drive for the month of July.

They will be collecting donations of school supplies and distributing them to local students and teachers for the upcoming school year, according to a news release.


“We wanted to create an opportunity to help teachers who were using their own money to buy school supplies for their classes,” Mary Beth Torgerson said.

School supply donations may be dropped off during the month of July from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday at the front desk of Keller Williams Realty Downtown, located at 202 Manufacturers Road.

“Last year’s school supply drive was so effective, and it was incredible to watch the community come together to help families who are struggling to afford school supplies,” Nathan Torgerson said in a prepared statement.

There are three other Torgerson Team members—Griff Fleenor, Jordan Cook and Lauren Johnson.
