Wilson’s World: Teacher Appreciation Week 2019 at Classroom Central
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – It’s ‘Teacher Appreciation Week’ and Wilson was showing his appreciation for our teachers this morning at Classroom Central.
The average teacher spends about $500 to $1,000 out of their pocket to help their students who are unable to afford even the the simplest of supplies that are necessary for a great education. In 2002 the Charlotte Chamber and the Carolina Panthers founded Classroom Central to help these teachers and students.
This morning Wilson presented his latest ‘Wilson’s Moment of Good Award’ to Classrooom Central for all of their great work and to help them get more supplies for students.
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.
Even though we are close to the end of the school year, teachers are still in need of supplies. 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.
