By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty

 

Color the Park School Supplies Drive In Charlotte's Ballantyne Corporate Park:

Now Through August 14th.

 

Did You Know That Just A $1 Donation Buys $9 Of School Supplies?

 

The 14th annual Ballantyne Corporate Park's Color The Park School Supplies Drive, benefiting Classroom Central is underway.  Classroom Central equips students in need by collecting and distributing free school supplies to local teachers. This coming school year, the need is even greater to overcome pandemic learning loss.

 

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 into $90,000 in supplies for Charlotte area students, over and above the donations of physical supplies.

Roy Kelley good morning, Roy... with so many offices still not at full capacity, it's important to get the word out on this event. Normally, we have donation bins everywhere in the Ballantyne Corporate Park office buislings.

I love programs like this Nina Hollander, Broker because it truly benefits the children with little to no chance that deadbeat parents can misuse the gift.

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

Bob "RealMan" Timm you have a point, Bob. At the same time, we can't necessarily say that all the kids who need school supplies have dead-beat parents. There simply is poverty in many pockets of our region.

You are absolutely correct Nina Hollander, Broker . Regretfully those who are able bodied in our area have no excuse as jobs, good paying jobs, are bountiful.

Should be a fun and very worthwhile day.  So many kids don't have the money available to get their back to school supplies so this is important

Ed Silva hi Ed... even though I've been familiar with these statistics of one in two children in our region not having school supplies, it still shocks me every year.

Joan Cox hi Joan... I used to do that... but I stopped... I cover too many school districts in the areas I sell in and it never generated any real response.
