- Ballantyne Equips Local Students with Over 100,000 School Supplies
We are excited to announce that through physical and monetary donations, our community has provided over 100,000 school supplies for local students in need through our Color the Park School Supplies Drive. In partnership with Classroom Central, the impact of these donations will make a significant difference in the lives of hundreds of children as they start the new school year, and we appreciate all who contributed to this important effort! Didn’t get the chance to donate? Contact your Community Director to learn how you can still support the cause.
We would like to recognize and thank some of the key partners for their generous support:
