Wilson’s World: Classroom Central in Need of Supplies for Remainder of the School Year

CHARLOTTE, N.C. –  By mid school year classrooms are getting low on supplies.  Pencils are nubs, glue sticks are dried out and crayons are broken.  So teachers head to Classroom Central to get stocked up.  But unfortunately right now even Classroom Central has very low supplies.   And they need to get restocked.  Wilson stopped in today to help them get the word out to get their shelves refilled.

Right now Classroom Central really needs composition books, #2 pencils, erasers, crayons, markers and even glue sticks.  Donation hours are Monday – Thursday 8am until noon.  If you can’t make it by during those hours, give them a call (704-377-1740) and they will schedule a time for you to come drop your items off.   They are asking the public as well as companies to help them out.

And don’t forget, they always can use volunteers at Classroom Central.  Be sure to check out their website for volunteer opportunities.

The mission of Classroom Central is to give students who live in poverty the school supplies they need to succeed in the classroom.  Classroom Central covers schools in Charlotte Mecklenburg, Gaston, Iredell/Statesville, Union, the City of Kannapolis, and Lancaster, SC.  To find out more about Classroom Central and how you can help go to their website at classroomcentral.org.
