“The Lions Club and a lot of our Edward Jones Clients were so kind to help, and they have every year donating school supplies for the drive,” said Sheets. Jacksboro Elementary School Principal Steven Sampieri calls it “awesome how Zach and the community care about students with their outreach.” Sampieri said, “We are very appreciative of that.”
Sampieri pointed out that a few parents at the school said that they could just not buy school supplies this year. “It means a lot, these donations, because they are very helpful.
Sheets is in tune with the elementary schools. He said, “It’s amazing the projects happening at this school, JES, with its garden and way out of the box thinking.” His approach with this drive is to be able to come back into the schools after school has been going for a few weeks to help those students who may be short a supply or two or missed out on the big supply drives before the school year started.
