The Foundation for Tulsa Schools has selected Supermercados Morelos as Community Partner of the Year after being nominated by Donna Gilford, Disney Elementary’s principal.
Gilford said, “Supermercados Morelos is an avid supporter of our region’s schools, their families and staff. As such, Disney Elementary has been on the receiving end. Supermercados Morelos has demonstrated its support for Disney elementary and community by supporting the school on many different occasions. This started with the 50th anniversary celebration by treating our many guests and alumni to an authentic feast of Mexican tamales and trimmings. They cosponsored our annual Trunk or Treat party – contributing and also participating in the evening event which was enjoyed by our biggest crowd ever with over 600 visitors, parents and children. To celebrate the holiday season Supermercado Morelos donated 30 food baskets to Disney’s families in need. This gift included turkeys and a certificate to shop at the store. More fun things Supermercados Morelos participated in for our students and staff was celebrating the Winter Holiday with a door decorating competition (with the winning classes receiving a piñata) and allowing the Disney chorus to sing carols at its store. We appreciate them so much and look forward to a long-lasting partnership.” .
Partners in Education helps connect businesses, faith-based organizations and nonprofit groups with individual schools to help meet their needs and provide opportunities to students. Each year, principals nominate the partners who have been particularly helpful in supporting their students and teachers during the past school year. 
“We are extremely grateful for the support and encouragement Supermercados Morelos provides to Disney Elementary students, teachers and staff. This partnership is a wonderful example of the community working with our school leadership to meet needs and provide wonderful opportunities to our students and families,” said Hallie Green of Partners in Education.
