DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

Two elementary schools in Dougherty County got a special gift Tuesday. 

Each year, Amerigroup Healthcare solutions sponsors two Title One elementary schools, through its "Teachers Closet" program.  

On Tuesday, they donated supplies to teachers at West Town and Turner Elementary Schools. 

Items included pencils, paper, Clorox wipes, and reams of paper.

"We're not only a health plan but we want to make sure that we bridge the gap between health care and the necessities within our communities. We want real solutions in our healthcare and that starts in our schools especially with our babies," said the Amerigroup community care relations coordinator Cicily Florence. 

Amerigroup real solutions helps Georgia families enroll in Medicaid and Peachcare for Kids.
