Domtar provides the gift of copy paper to high-needs schools

Posted by: classroomcentral in Behind the Scenes, Blog, Donors & Supporters 5 years, 6 months ago

In all of our programs, there is one thing that is considered to be as good as gold in the classroom: copy paper.  With many teachers receiving limited supply at the beginning of each semester (we have heard 2 packs is the norm), it simply isn’t enough.  With state school supply budgets decreasing even further in 2013-2014, our region’s teachers in high needs schools rely on Classroom Central for essential items.

Two Men & A Truck Transports For Students In Need

Posted by: classroomcentral in Behind the Scenes, Donors & Supporters 5 years, 8 months ago

We wanted to share some love for one of Classroom Central’s friends: Two Men & A Truck.twomenTwo Men & A Truck helps out Classroom Central in a big way. And we literally mean A BIG WAY! They serve our organization by hauling all of our big items. The signature event they assist with is our Backpacks & Basics campaign, in which we deliver supply kits and backpacks to the highest-need schools in our region. This year, we covered seven schools: Montclaire Elementary, Reid Park Academy, Walter G Byers Elementary, Sterling Elementary, Ashley Park, Sedgefield Elementary and Lingerfeldt Elementary. Every single child in the school gets a supply kit, so this means over 4000 were distributed.ReidPark_8-27-13-0070WalterGByers-0191As Classroom Central does not have a large truck for moving items, we wouldn’t be able to do this without their help. Plus, for the Backpacks & Basics program, they send two of their finest movers to help for the entire day.  They have been helping Classroom Central with this initiative for over five years! We were also appreciative of their support during our Clearing Out Office Supplies for Classroom Central event in Uptown Charlotte this summer. They helped transport all bins & set-up items in the morning, and the product in the evening.ClearingOutSuppliesForClassroomCentral-0494Plus, they did the same set-up and tear-down for Classroom Central Field Day for which they were our Gold Medal champions.ClassroomCentralFieldDay-9379We are appreciative of all they do for us throughout the year. Thanks Two Men & A Truck! Related media: Two Men & A Truck blog postClearing Out Office Supplies for Classroom Central  Classroom Central Field Day
