2020 Color The Park School Supplies Drive In Ballantyne Corporate Park

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty

 

 

Color the Park School Supplies Drive In Charlotte's Ballantyne Corporate Park: Now Through August 14th.

 

The 13th annual Ballantyne Corporate Park's Color The Park School Supplies Drive, benefiting Classroom Central is underway. What's different about the 2020 School Supplies Drive? This year, the drive has gone VIRTUAL!  With so many corporate offices still closed due to the pandemic, you won't be seeing donation barrels in Ballantyne Corporate Park buildings as in the past.

 

 

More than one million school supplies are needed. Every donated dollar is worth $9 of school supplies. Color The Park has set a goal of collecting $10,000 that will hopefully translate to $90,000 in supplies for Charlotte area students.

 

How you can donate to the 2020 Virtual Color The Park School Supplies Drive In Ballantyne.

 

Some 50% of Charlotte region's students live in poverty and 1 in 2 students in our region lack the most basic of school supplies. Classroom Central serves over 127,000 students and their teachers across 6 school districts in 198 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. And over 85,000 students receive supplies each year. And even with remote learning this fall, students still are in need of supplies.

 

Interested in learning more about the great work Classroom Central does in the Charlotte metro area? Check out these videos. There's just no way you won't want to contribute once you watch them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The need for school supplies for Charlotte's needy children is great. Please be generous and donate as much as you can to the Ballantyne Corporate Park's 2020 Virtual Color The Park School Supplies Drive.

Laura Cerrano good morning, Laura... without all kinds of community drives we'd have so many more deprived kids in our area... be it for food, school supplies, clothing, etc.

Barbara Todaro good morning, Barbara... it is hard to say no when it comes to kids...but with most people still not working in offices where they couldn't avoid the donation barrels each year it will be interesting to see how a virtual donation drive will do this year without that daily reminder.

Nina, Here's hoping that this virtual program will bring as many donations as previous years...or even more!

Wayne Martin hi Wayne... after 12 years of this campaign it would have been a shame to totally cancel it this year.

Grant Schneider hi Grant... I'm not so worried that people will cut back because they don't care... more so that they won't see a daily reminder in their offices with the collection bins for school supplies.

I hope that this event will be a huge success and that no child will have to go without the school supplies that they need.

Brian England hi Brian... I have a feeling that this year will be a particularly hard one on schools being able to distribute supplies as our schools remain closed.

Hi Nina Hollander - This is very encouraging.  I hope they exceed their goal. #erasetheneed 

My kids are in their 40's but when they were in grammar school - during the parent-teacher night conferences, the teachers were asking for all kinds of supplies. That was more than 30 years ago. This is something that should not be taken for granted.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel hi Alexandra... there's actually very little promotion of this event this year... I figure that every bit helps.

Hi Nina,

This is such a wonderful project to be involved in and letting people know about it.  With a lot happening virtually, it's easy to forget the needs of others at time, especially our youth.

Jeffrey Richman good morning, Jeff. Classroom Central is an amazing organization. I'm delighted that BCP is doing a virtual drive this year, but I am concerned that when all the people who work in BCP don't go into the office and see the donation barrels each day that they will "forget" about the really important drive to raise money for school supplies.
