The Concord-Afton Sunset Rotary Club is sponsoring the Cabarrus County WSOC-TV 9 SchoolTools project for the fifth year.
All supplies collected benefit Cabarrus County Schools and Kannapolis City Schools students and staff. In the first four years, over 108,000 items have been collected and provided to schools.
On Saturday, Aug. 13, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Rotarians will be hosting a drive-and-drop supply collection in Afton Village near the gazebo on Village Drive. School supplies, including facial tissues and disinfectant wipes will be collected. Financial donations to the “Rotary Club of Concord-Afton Sunset” will also be accepted and will be used to purchase the most-needed items.
Staples is selling supply boxes of 19 items for $5 which can be placed in our 9SchoolTools barrel at Staples. The Ashley Home Store in the Afton Ridge shopping center (Kannapolis Parkway) is a corporate sponsor for the overall WSOC Channel 9 School Tools project for the 22 counties in the Channel 9 viewing area. Target and Harris Teeter have also generously provided donations.
