JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Hidden Oaks Elementary School teachers received some holiday gifts a bit early this year. They got the chance to have a shopping spree at the Office Depot on Ramona Blvd.

They were able to spend more than $30,000 buying critical school supplies to help restock their classrooms and support their students’ education.

Hidden Oaks Elementary was one of nearly 70 Title I schools across the country to receive money from the organization.

The funds came from a larger sum of $2.2 million raised nationwide, from the retailer and their partnership with Round It Up America.

The money was donated July through September, from back-to-school shoppers and business clients.
