Monday was delivery day for the 13 Connects Supplies for Success Drive. 

Good Morning Las Vegas anchors delivered school supplies to Keller Elementary School from our Supplies for Success donation drive. 13 Action News launched the teacher supply drive in response to the need for supplies around the valley. 

Beth Fisher and Yasmeen Hassan delivered to third grade teacher Christina Carlson. She has been teaching for more than 15 years and was extremely appreciative of the donations.

Dayna Roselli and Justin Bruce delivered to third grade teacher Kristen Davis. She has been teaching for 14 years.

"There's never enough pencils, never enough pens, markers are like gold," Davis said. "Having the community come together like this and support our schools is greatly appreciated and our children are going to be the ones who benefit from this."

School supply deliveries will be made all week long to more teachers at Keller Elementary School as well as Keller Middle School, Woolley Elementary School, Edwards Elementary School, and Moore Elementary School.

The drive is sponsored by Subaru of Las Vegas and America First Credit Union. 

Supplies weren't the only thing to come out of the supply drive.

13 Action News presented a $2,000 check from the Scripps Howard Foundation to the Public Education Foundation Monday.

Meanwhile, Geotab donated $7,000 to Woolley Elementary School Monday. The local tech and fleet management company was in the middle of its own back-to-school drive when they saw the story about Woolley's obstacles.

The story changed the focus of Geotab's collection drive to benefit Woolley.
