Oklahoma teachers have been marching for higher wages and better funding for their schools, and Mike Gundy is here to help.
The Oklahoma State football coach announced that he would hold a donation drive for teachers in the Stillwater Public Schools system.
We are collecting items for the teachers going to the Capitol Mon 9-1 at Sangre Ridge. Items needed are gas cards, Uber cards, snacks, drinks (soda), we have lots of water as of now, fruit, & monetary donations are greatly needed! This supports the entire SPS district. Thank you!

Gundy asked for gas cards, Uber cards, snacks, fruit and monetary donations. They’re already set on water.
Gundy has been vocally supportive of the teachers and their efforts for some time.
Oklahoma State men’s basketball coach Mike Boynton offered his support for the teachers and Gundy’s food drive as well.
I'm with you, Coach. Outside of my parents, NO ONE had a greater impact on my life than my teachers. They deserve all the resources possible. The future (OUR children) of our state and country depends on it. https://t.co/mVk8Onj5KV
