Bentonville, Ark., September 15, 2009 — To help offset rising expenses for classroom supplies this back-to-school season, Walmart and Sam's Club have launched Teacher Rewards, a new program to provide more than $4 million to 40,000 deserving teachers across the United States. On average, teachers spend more than $500 a year out of their own pockets for classroom supplies, according to the American Federation of Teachers. Statistics like these inspire Walmart and Sam's Club associates to continue supporting education and teacher recognition in their local communities.
