A huge thanks to Charlotte Oktoberfest for naming Classroom Central as one of the beneficiaries from their event on Saturday. We were one of three charities to benefit, each receiving a staggering $25,000! We were honored to stand on the stage, along with Project Halo and Second Harvest Food Bank:
Local businesses and corporations are integral to our mission at Classroom Central. From financial donations, to employee drives, to the encouragement of volunteerism, we feel very lucky for all they do for us. We’ve been very impressed with their donations during the Back To School season! In addition, so many businesses have been using their creative juices, that we wanted to share a few with you:
At Classroom Central, we have the most amazing volunteer support system. Since we just have a staff of eleven, we rely on our volunteers to help us achieve our mission. Our volunteer spotlights are a way of showcasing those individuals and groups.
Last Sunday, we enjoyed a day at the ball park, compliments of The Charlotte Knights & Belk. Their Back To School Day benefited Classroom Central, and those fans who brought supplies got a discount on tickets.
We were delighted to attend today’s Panther’s Countdown to the Kickoff. The proceeds from the event are donated to Classroom Central, Levine Children’s Hospital, and the USO-NC.
