August 03, 2015 // Franchising.com // CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Sky Zone Charlotte is teaming up with Classroom Central to provide essential school supplies to underprivileged children. With a large majority of the region’s students currently living in poverty, Classroom Central is dedicated to supporting over 100,000 students in 200 schools by collecting and distributing free school supplies. Sky Zone Charlotte is proud to help provide these children with the right tools and equipment they need to be successful in the classroom.
With the start of classes fast approaching, Sky Zone Charlotte is doing their part by giving back to the youth in the community. From August 3rd to August 15th, guests can donate three new school supplies with the purchase of a jump pass and will receive a free 30-minute jump pass that can be redeemed any time during the month of September. In addition, drop boxes will be available for guests who wish to make a general school supply donation.
“This partnership exemplifies the dedication both Sky Zone Charlotte and Classroom Central have in giving back to our community,” said Brian Spicker, owner of Sky Zone Charlotte. “With so many of our kids deprived of the most basic school essentials, we hope to brighten up the future of these children by properly equipping them and rewarding our loyal guests for helping us.”
