Donate $50 to supply a teacher with essential school items

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, 9 School Tools 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.

1 in 2 students comes to school without the supplies needed to succeed. You can help change that.

  • Donate $9 to provide homework supplies for students.
  • Donate $25 to fill a student’s backpack with school supplies.
  • Donate $50 to supply a teacher with essential school items.
  • Donate $100 to supply an entire class with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) kits.

We hope you’ll join our 9 Family Focus partners, Arby’s, Ashley HomeStore, Carolina Panthers, Charlotte Gastroenterology & Hepatology and E.R. Services in our combined effort to support our students and teachers.


Thank you for supporting 9 School Tools benefiting Classroom Central and students in need.
