Please Join 9 School Tools in Supporting Classroom Central!

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 and has served over 3 million children to date. In partnership with Communities in Schools Charlotte-Mecklenburg and Classroom Central, WSOC-TV collects school supplies, which are then distributed to students in grades K – 12

We hope you'll join our 9 Family Focus partners, in our combined effort to support local students and teachers.

If you can, please donate online today. 

Thank you for your support!​

Classroom Central fosters equity in education by providing teachers and students with the free resources they need to succeed. We serve teachers and students in over 200 schools across six school districts in the Charlotte Region.

Your support is more crucial this year than ever before. Every November, we receive updated statistics on free/reduced lunch for the schools we cater to. Typically, there are a few schools that become eligible due to changes in student populations. However, this year is different. We have welcomed 34 newly eligible schools, and what's even more significant is the addition of 38,000 students who are relying on our support. This marks the largest increase in our 20-year history, with several schools that have never qualified or required our assistance before. To ensure we can adequately meet the needs of these additional students without compromising our impact on those already being served, we must obtain more essential supplies like paper and pencils, which are crucial for both students and teachers. 

Donate to our virtual supply drive to help Classroom Central prepare 156,000 local students for back-to-school.
