What We Do

Since 2002, Classroom Central has provided free school supplies to area students in need. Supporting 127,000 students across six school districts, our team provides everything from notebooks and pencils, to crayons and books, and so much more to nearly 200 schools each year.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:

How We Are Impacted: In light of current school closings our primary focus is ensuring students have opportunities to continue learning while at home and to equip them to be successful once school resumes.

We are working with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools and our local non-profit partners to provide supplies to students at Emergency Meal Distribution locations throughout the county. The designated sites will enable children that rely on school meals to continue receiving them even while on break. In addition, we are working with partner agencies, such as food and shelter providers, to extend our reach to even more students.

How You Can Help:

Specific Volunteer Needs: We have shifted all of our resources to meet the urgent needs of students in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, and we invite you to help us ensure every student has access to the supplies needed to learn at home. Choose from our remote volunteer opportunities: https://classroomcentral.org/remote-volunteer-opportunities/

Financial Donations Requested: Many of you have asked how you can help. At this time, we have shifted all of our resources to meet this urgent need and invite you to ensure students have access to these needed supplies as follow. During the COVID-19 crisis, 3,000 CMS students need homework kits every week. If you have the means, please consider making a donation: https://classroomcentral.org/give-online/

1. Make a cash donation to allow us to respond immediately to the changing needs of our local students.

2. Donate a Homework Supply Kit. Classroom Central is building kits from our current inventory, which will soon run out. Help restock our inventory by purchasing a supply kit for $25 to be immediately deployed to Charlotte students.
