School Supplies Drive for Homeless CMS Students

Thomasboro Academy, a Charlotte Mecklenburg School with the highest documented number of homeless families (more than 150 homeless families). New Growth Hair Magazine has partnered with Central Piedmont Community College’s Cosmetology Students and several local businesses to help Thomasboro’s students enter the 2014-2015 school prepared to learn.

Why Thomasboro Academy?

Thomasboro Academy serves students grades K-8 who are facing serious financial challenges. More than 150 Thomasboro families are homeless or living in temporary housing, so the cost of backpacks ($40), notebooks ($10), pencils ($5), and other school supplies are just too much!
