Color The Park School Supplies Drive 2018 In Ballantyne

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

 

 

Color the Park School Supplies Drive In Charlotte's Ballantyne Corporate Park: August 1st to August 10th.

 

The 11th annual Ballantyne Corporate Park's Color The Park School Supplies Drive, benefiting Classroom Central begins just one week from today on August 1st. When school bells ring this August, 1 in 2 Charlotte area students will arrive at school empty handed, putting them behind on the very first day.
 

More than 50% of the Charlotte region's students live in poverty. Classroom Central serves over 125,000 students and their teachers across 6 school districts in 199 high-need schools. Their mission is to equip students to effectively learn by collecting and distributing free school supplies. Classroom Central is the primary resource for school supplies for students in need.  

 

 

Classroom Central Donation Guidelines

In order to equip our local students in need with all of the basic tools they need to succeed, more than 1.8 million supplies are needed. Donation barrels will be located in the building lobbies in Ballantyne Corporate Park as of August 1st.

Gita Bantwal hi Gita... this is typically a very successful drive and this year should be even more so now that my company has decided to help support it throughout its offices making it easier for people to contribute for more days in more places.

Barbara Todaro hi Barbara... I've lived here for 20 years now and am still totally shocked that 50% of our area students live in such poverty that their families cannot afford school supplies. Thank God for Classroom Central and the work it does in our community.

Good morning Nina Hollander,

Wow 50% live in poverty in such a thriving part of the county. I can see why Classroom Central is so important and good to hear all that you are doing for these kiddos.

Wayne Martin hi Wayne... Charlotte is a very affluent city in many ways... so it is hard to fathom that one in two children lives at poverty level.

Brian England hi Brian... I just got back from Walmart where I filled up a huge bad with all sorts of supplies for about $10... they are selling notebooks for 25 cents each, pencil and crayon boxes for 25 cents each, etc. I'll be going back to buy more over the weekend.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel hi Alexandra... I was gob-smacked the first time I heard this statistic some years ago, especially for a city that is as affluent as Charlotte. I've always donated to Classroom Central, but am so happy that my brokerage is now making it easier for more people to donate at our various offices around the Charlotte metro area, as not everyone can get to the Ballantyne Corporate Park easily.

Nina I was surprise to see that:

"More than 50% of the Charlotte region's students live in poverty."

Hopefully this is a successful event.
