Want to Give Back to the Charlotte Community?

Join us as we support the Channel 9 School Tools school supplies donation drive!

Annual School Supplies Donation Drive

WSOC-TV’s 9 School Tools campaign is a part of the Channel 9 Family Focus brand and was introduced in 1997. Covering over 22 counties, this is the largest school supply drive in the Carolinas; it has served over 3 million children to date. In partnership with Communities in Schools Charlotte-Mecklenburg and Classroom Central, WSOC-TV collects school supplies during the month of August, which are then distributed to students in grades K – 12. These items play a big role in preparing students to be successful in the upcoming school year.

E.R. Plumbing Services will host a collection site. Both physical and monetary donations are encouraged; Classroom Central can turn every one-dollar donation into five dollars of school supplies.

Ways to Give

School supplies can be dropped off at 648-C Matthews Mint Hill Road in Matthews between July 9 and August 20th.

On Wednesday August 17th, donations will be collected at the WSOC Channel 9 television station between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. At that time, E.R. Plumbing Services will man the donation location, providing manpower to help accept and load donations into the truck for delivery to Classroom Central. From that point, school supplies will be distributed to children in need around the Charlotte area.

On Saturday, August 20th, school supplies will be collected by letter carriers around the Charlotte. Simply mark school supplies “Channel 9 School Tools” and leave the donation in a mailbox. A U.S. Postal Service letter carrier will deliver the donation to Classroom Central, and the supplies will be distributed from there.
