Teachers were asked to choose three things they needed most for their classrooms and the PNC elves helped to fulfill those wishes. 

There were just as many surprised exclamations of “Wow, Thanks, and I really needed this” from the Pre-K teachers as from the young students who eagerly unwrapped the gifts as they were handed over. Wish-list items ranged from a standing easel, to paper, art supplies, and a classroom favorite – brightly colored Play-Doh modeling compound.
