School supply donations down, asking community for help

School supply donations down, asking community for help

An effort to help teachers in Roane County keep their classrooms stocked with supplies is in need of community help.

The Roane County Teachers' Supply Closet collects supplies and monetary donations to help teachers with basic supplies to help free up school resources for other classroom projects. The teachers can then "shop" for the items for free.

The shopping event will be held next Wednesday, September 26, but the Roane Alliance says so far their donations are down dramatically from years past.

A greenway project in Harriman got a big boost Wednesday from the Tennessee Department of Transportation.

Phase one will include the construction of nearly 1,500 feet of paved trail starting near Roane Street and ending at Morgan Avenue.

City leaders hope the project will encourage residents to be active and enjoy the great outdoors.
