November 27th is #GivingTuesdayCLT and Classroom Central is hoping that our community will rally to donate 27,000 pencils by that date! Did you know that we give away more than 40,000 pencils each month to teachers in nearly 200 schools across 6 districts? At that rate, we won't have enough to get through this school year, so we hope you can help. At just 10 cents per pencil, you can buy a lot of pencils for as little as $10, $25, or $50. Of course, you could also purchase all 27,000 if you felt inspired!

Summer break is approaching and while many have visions of pool days and vacations on the brain, there are also great activities that can be done to exercise kids’ philanthropic interests over the break. After hearing from many parents that they had a desire to get their teens and younger kids involved in philanthropy, Classroom Central developed a Student Ambassador program.
A new year means a new semester for local students. While many people understand the needs that exists around Back to School in August, often, the needs of students are forgotten in the Second Semester. Notebooks are filled up, crayons are nubs and pencils are widdled down to the eraser. In fact, in a recent survey, 99% of teachers said Second Semester was just as important as the Back to School timeframe.
