When Gilbert Elementary teacher Maria Castillo entered a Farmers Insurance Facebook giveaway contest for school supplies, she never thought she’d win.

However, she was surprised when she received an email from Farmers Insurance naming her the winner.

“I was very excited to find out that we had won,” Castillo said. “We consider ourselves lucky to have been selected to receive supplies that our amazing students can use.”

Castillo was randomly chosen the winner from Farmers Insurance after she had simply “liked and shared” a post during the summer.

Farmers Insurance representatives surprised Castillo and her team last week with bags filled with essential school supplies for the classroom.

Castillo and her team received construction paper, pencils, glue, erasers, spiral notebooks, pens, notebook paper, dry erase markers and rulers. Farmers Insurance also included water bottles, calendars and stress balls as gifts for the teachers.

“I was excited for Ms. Castillo,” Gilbert Elementary Principal Herlinda Martinez-Longoria said. “I always find it inspiring when teachers go out of their way to find ways to support their students, their teams, and their campus!”
