Each year, teachers spend an average of $500 of their own money to purchase supplies for students. Nationally, this equates to $1.3 Billion spent out of pocket from teachers for classroom school supplies. And with growing educational budget cuts, that means less support for teachers. ComServe Wireless and founders, Richard and Kelly Gdovic, believe that teachers deserve more, that’s why we have partnered with TCC to give teachers the speed they need. We delivered school supplies to our local communities throughout Virginia and Maryland.

“We are very excited to get to reward these very deserving teachers in our communities across Virginia and Maryland. Educational opportunities are paramount and I am proud that we are able to make a difference in the lives of our employees, customers, and communities.”

-Stephen Kraning, President
