Over 50% of students in the Charlotte region live in poverty. You can help us level the educational playing field for these students with a simple activity. Choose from Kits for a Cause or our Flash Cards projects.
Every Kits for a Cause that you, your business, civic or religious group creates will enable a child to have the most basic tools they need to be successful in school. There are four different kits you can choose from: Pencil Pouches, Wellness Kits, Art Kits, and STEM Kits.
How does it work?
1) Your group purchases the kits through Classroom Central’s wholesale partner, saving you hundreds of dollars compared to retail pricing.
2) The items are shipped to the location of your choice where you host an event and assemble the kits.
3) Once completed, kits can be dropped off at Classroom Central during our regular donation hours (Monday-Thursday from 8AM-Noon). For large deliveries (500+ kits), please contact Mike Daley.
Every flashcard packet that you, your business, or group creates will enable a child to learn the basics and be successful in school. There are four different templates you can choose from: Alphabet, Shapes, Colors, and Numbers.
How does it work?
1) Your group gathers or purchases materials and creates flashcards using our the Classroom Central templates below. (Please feel free to be creative! You do not have to match the template exactly, it is just a guide) and bags them into zip-top baggies. Also, feel free to use our event resources linked below.
2) Once completed, flashcards can be dropped off at Classroom Central during our regular donation hours (Monday-Thursday from 8AM-Noon).
