t 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 with a lot of the heavy lifting! Our volunteer spotlights are a way of sharing about those who really help make our mission happen.
Keeping our Free Store stocked would not be possible without the dedication of our volunteers and corporate partners. We wanted to share a few images of the volunteer groups that helped us in March 2014:
A few weeks ago, Albemarle Road Elementary had a surprise they won’t soon forget. The entire school was bused to Grady Cole Center for a Dr. Seuss Reading Spectacular hosted by the Carolina Panthers. As the school’s auditorium only fit 300 students and the school population was 1400, the Carolina Panthers organized buses and the rental of the arena to fit the high-energy event. The importance of reading 20 and playing 60 (minutes per day) was emphasized through creative games and activities. Over a dozen students were selected to participate in special games and to interact directly with players Thomas Davis (58) and Graham Gano (9).
