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.
