Family Focus


WSOC-TV’s 9 School Tools campaign is a part of the Channel 9 Family Focus brand and was introduced in 1997. Covering 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 ALL Charlotte Fire Department stations from July 1 - August 31.

Use the 9 School Tools Donation Location map to find your nearest drop-off location.

On August 17 from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m., join us at WSOC-TV, 235 W. 23rd St., Charlotte, NC 28206 and donate school supplies.
