HERNANDO COUNTY, Fla. — The Nature Coast Diva Angels is a ladies motorcycle group that is giving school supplies to help out teachers this holiday season. 

The group dropped off school supplies at "Tools 4 Schools," a free store for teachers in Hernando County. The store is stocked with everything from pencils and paper to flash drives and backpacks. 

Tammy Brinker, Executive Director of the Hernando County Education Foundation, says this program and donations like this help teachers in a big way.

"This prevents them from reaching into their own pockets. They typically spend about $500 a year just on supplies that they need for their own classrooms," she said.

There are two "Tools 4 Schools" locations in Hernando County: The Hernando County Education Foundation building located at 900 Emerson Rd. in Brooksville. The other is located at Springstead High School off of Mariner Blvd in Spring Hill.

Nature Coast Diva Angels Director Jamie Zamora said, "We donate to several charities and teachers need all the help they can get, big or small."

The Diva Angels also donated prom dresses to the Cinderella Boutique that is opening in the Spring at the Hernando County Education Foundation building for students to shop for free prom dresses.
