- Calling All Volunteers for Color the Park
Ballantyne’s 2021 Color the Park School Supplies Drive is underway and we need your help to complete a fun volunteer project with Classroom Central!
Northwood Office is donating 650 pencil kits to the drive and we need the community’s support to organize and pack the supplies. Volunteers will also get the chance to write letters of encouragement for students and teachers as they enter a new school year after over a year of pandemic learning loss.
The volunteer project begins at 11 a.m. on Saturday, August 14 in Ballantyne’s Backyard, located at 11611 North Community House Road, Charlotte, NC 28277. Markets at 11, a free, open-air community market is open in the park from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on August 14. Arrive at the event entrance, then walk to the Classroom Central tent and project area. Volunteering is open as supplies last. Attendees are welcome to bring school supplies and donate at the event.
