By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty

 

 

Color the Park School Supplies Drive In Charlotte's Ballantyne Corporate Park: August 1st to August 15th.

 

The 12th annual Ballantyne Corporate Park's Color The Park School Supplies Drive, benefiting Classroom Central is underway. When school bells ring in the 2019/2020 school year later this month, 1 in 2 Charlotte area students will arrive at school empty handed, putting them behind on the very first day.
 

Some 50% of Charlotte region's students live in poverty. Classroom Central serves over 127,000 students and their teachers across 6 school districts in 199 high-need/high poverty 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.  

 

Color The Park School Supplies Drive In BallantyneThe 2019 Color the Park school supplies collection effort is focusing on the five most needed items:

• Pencils
• Crayons
• Colored Pencils
• Markers
• Highlighters

 

2019 Tax Free Back To School Shopping Weekend In Charlotte RegionDon't forget, it's Back-to-School Tax Free Shopping Weekend in South Carolina August 2 through 4. You can pick up supplies to donate and save at least 6%.

 

You can also make a monetary donation to Color The Park on-line. Did you know that every $1 contributed provides $9 worth of school supplies? This year's goal is to raise $10,000. As of August 1, $625 has already been donated.

 

 

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.

Hello Nina - the need is very real.  And it's unfortunate.  Your post highlighting the school supplies drive in Charlotte helps get out the word of the most needed items as Charlotte children return to school.  Color The Park is creative and quite necessary.

Nina, Yes it's sad and unfortunately it can be said for too many areas. It's a real sitaution and I'm glad that Charlotte is asking for these donations, and that they get them!

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 hi Sheila and Larry... it's very sad that so many children are at risk of going without and whose education is compromised from day one.

Michael Jacobs hi Michael... and for some reason that need never seems to diminish... in fact it increases. The Color the Park drive is a great way to raise money and awareness for Classroom Central, whose volunteers do an amazing job getting supplies to the poorest schools in our area.

Anita Clark thanks, Anita. We never really saw these kinds of school supply drives in NYC... but my eyes were really opened when we moved to Charlotte about how great the need is.

Joan Cox hi Joan... to me, it feels as if the school year just ended and now it's about to start again! The summer has just flown by. Probably the kids think so, as well.

George Souto hi George... Ballantyne Corporate Park is the largest such park in the nation so we have lots of people who work there... hopefully, everyone will contribute a little for a big total at the end.

Francine Viola thanks, Francine. The need to help our poverty schools here is very great... so I post about this Classroom Central drive every year. I figure every little bit of extra awareness helps.

Oh I so appreciate these events. If everyone pitches in, it is so much more managable. I remember how difficult, as a single mom, it was when this time of year rolled around. School clothes, school supplies, and three children with late summer and fall birthdays. Good thing I had a well paying job.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD hi Debb... and all those things for school from supplies to clothing don't get cheaper as time goes on. At least when I went to school, my brother and I wore uniforms, so the budget for clothes was more limited.

Steve and Eleanor Thorne it's amazing how far a dollar stretches... I see the same in how our food pantries manage to provide provisions.
