Representatives from the Leonard Management Group, which owns several McDonald's restaurant locations throughout the region, were on hand at the McDonald's location on Main Street in Mitchell Friday to distribute 125 school supply kits to teachers in Mitchell as a way to show appreciation for teachers and all they provide for their students.

The kits include pencils, dry erase markers, hand sanitizer, tissues, paper, Post-It notes and more. Teachers were booked to pick up bags of supplies throughout the day, said Marla Snyder, director of marketing and community relations with the company.

In all, the Leonard Management Group is donating more than $20,000 in school supplies to teachers across Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota.
