About 9 School Tools
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 for two weeks 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.
