9 School Tools: Special collection day at WSOC-TV

9 School Tools Special Collection Day is a day full of fun and giving, where community members are invited to come out to the WSOC-TV Studios and donate school supplies -- all in efforts to help local students prepare for the upcoming school year.

On August 18 from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m., join us at WSOC-TV, 235 W. 23rd St., Charlotte, NC 28206 and donate school supplies.

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 4 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. These items play a big role in preparing students to be successful in the upcoming school year.

You can drop off school supply items at any Arby’s, Ashley HomeStore and E.R. Services from July 1 - August 31.
