Fowler Toyota of Norman hosts art supply drive benefitting Norman Public Schools

Fowler Toyota has partnered with the City of Norman, Copelin’s Office Supply, Republic Bank & Trust and STASH to host a community-wide art supply drive to benefit students in Norman Public Schools.

While statewide budget shortfalls have reduced funding available for public education, district leaders have remained steadfast in their commitment to providing robust fine arts programs for Norman students. Additional materials contributed through the supply drive will allow art teachers throughout Norman Public Schools to enhance artistic and educational experiences for students.

To kick off the drive, Fowler Toyota donated $7,500 toward new supplies for Norman Public Schools art teachers. Throughout February and March, Fowler Toyota aims to collect enough art supplies to fill a Toyota Tundra. The community is encouraged to purchase donations from the list below and drop off at the following locations:
