- DC2C Donates Chair Back Covers to Local School
At DC2C’s event, Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader, held in March of 2015, we celebrated five years of providing school supplies to classrooms in our community. Red and yellow chair back organizers were used at the celebration event to hold program books and other important information, and demonstrated to guests how the organizers can be used in a classroom setting. In classrooms that have limited or no desk storage options, teachers have shared that the organizers provide structure for their students, free up floor space of tripping hazards, and help students stay organized.
A special event was held on February 16, 2016 to present those chair back organizers to several classrooms at Greenmont Elementary School. Read more about the event here.Continue reading →
