Carolina Place program helps SCES
Carolina Place is partnering with DonorsChoose.org for its Celebrate Schools initiative designed to help teachers with much-needed classroom supplies and funding. Fort Mill’s Sugar Creek Elementary School is one of this year’s beneficiaries.
Started in 2000 by social studies teacher Charles Best, DonorsChoose.org is an online charity that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need. The website is designed to connect individual donors directly with classrooms in need, grades kindergarten to high school. Teachers post classroom project requests on DonorsChoose.org and donors browse project requests and are able to donate any amount. Once a project reaches its funding goal, DonorsChoose.org delivers the materials to the school.
Projects posted on DonorsChoose.org receive an initial donation from Carolina Place. In addition, the mall will match a portion of the donations that come from either current members of its email database, The Club, or from new members who sign up by Oct. 14. You can sign up for The Club and receive a matching code for your donation at www.connectshopsave.com.
Sugar Creek Elementary School needs learning CDs for kindergarteners who are interested in music but have less time for music classes. See “The Sound of Music” on the website.
Those who sign up for the program will receive direct marketing offers from the mall, but their information will not be sold or shared with any third parties, a mall spokesmen said.
