DENVERLightning Labels started its partnership with Classroom Central by donating full color, adhesive window decals custom printed with the nonprofits logo. Classroom Central is dedicated to equipping students for learning by collecting and distributing free school supplies to students in the Charlotte, NC, metro area. Lightning Labels decals will be used to promote the work Classroom Central does on behalf of impoverished students in North Carolina.
Classroom Central is excited and honored to partner with Lightning Labels to help spread the word about our mission of providing school supplies to the poorest children in our community," said Classroom Central executive director Janice Holly Booth. The Lightning Labels partnership means that Classroom Central can spend more of its precious resources on classroom essentials, ensuring more students get the support they need to be successful in the classroom and in life."
Lightning Labels general manager James Lowry, added, In this day and age of hard economic times, it is inspirational to see organizations like Classroom Central take on the challenge of supplying children in need with the school supplies they require to succeed now and in the future. At one time, I thought that these essentials were trivial and assumed that everyone had them. I have since learned that this is not the case. Seeing the relief, confidence and happiness that overcomes a child when she receives much-needed school essentials such as pencils, paper and a backpack is very moving. The work Classroom Central is doing is immeasurable."
Since the inception of Classroom Central in 2002, the organization has strived to serve the education and creative needs of impoverished children of the Southern Piedmont of North Carolina by providing students with donated merchandise from businesses and individuals by means of a Free Store for teachers. Currently, Classroom Central is serving 166 schools and 97,000 students in Charlotte-Mecklenburg and surrounding school districts. In its first eight years, Classroom Central has distributed more than $23 million in free school supplies.
