Camp North End businesses to host weeklong school supply drive

Several businesses will serve as drop-off locations for supply donations.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (QC Life) - The start of school is right around the corner for many districts in the Charlotte area, and others have already begun the new school year.

To help with back-to-school costs, several Camp North End businesses are serving as drop-off locations for school supplies.

The school supply drive will run from Aug. 13-20, and will be hosted by pop-up art company The Broken Crayon.

Donation bins and volunteers will be on-site, as will music, free art activities and more.

Many of the businesses are offering special discounts or supply matches to those who donate, which you can find below.
