We are pleased to announce that A Child’s Place is participating in United Way of Central Carolina’s new Charitable Partnership with the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and their Championship Football game that will be held in Charlotte each December through 2019. Specifically, we are participating in the ACC-United Way Reading and Attendance Challenge, which was announced on October 15. Our students are challenged with having 2 weeks of perfect attendance between October 26 and November 6. Each will be entered into a drawing to receive 2 tickets to the Championship Football game on December 5.
This new and creative ACC-United Way Partnership is providing resources and incentives for the Challenge, but is also bringing needed awareness around the community work in reading and attendance, plus the larger goal of high school graduation. Help fund the incentives for the Reading and Attendance Challenge through a special ticket offer for the Championship Football game.
