On Monday, we were honored to participate in a science experiment sponsored by Discovery Place and WSOC Channel 9 in support ofSchool Tools.
Yesterday was a wild day at the WSOC #SchoolTools kickoff at the Wells Fargo Atrium.
In the fiscal year 2012-2013, Classroom Central benefitted from 13,400 volunteer hours. Our volunteers include both groups (from corporations, clubs & organizations, schools & universities, to faith groups) as well as individuals. Many of our individual volunteers commit to Classroom Central in such a way that it is equivalent to a part or full time job. From former teachers to those just passionate about giving back to the community, we are fortunate to have all of them join us in achieving our mission to equip kids living in poverty with school supplies. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do every day.
Every Thursday in the summer, tons of fun young professionals gather at The Epicentre for the biggest after-work party in Charlotte, complete with band and a lively crowd. As a part of our Clearing Out For Classroom Central effort in Uptown last week, we were invited to attend the event and mingle with the group for our cause. Thank goodness the rain stopped so that we could be a part of it.
Tonight, when you look at the Duke Energy Tower, notice that it is lit up like a pencil in support of Classroom Central.
