APC School Drive

APC’s 2022 School Supply Drive

APC is proud to announce that we are participating in a company-wide school drive benefiting schools in and around the communities we serve through Monday, August 8, 2022! We will partner with organizations focused in and around our Raleigh, Atlanta, Denver, Charlotte offices.

How We’re Participating:

Our corporate headquarters in Raleigh and our Atlanta office will partner with Crayons2Calculators. This organization supports teachers and students in the public school system of the areas we serve. Through their Fill That Bus! initiative, they provide teachers and students with much-needed supplies. Other internal remote employees are welcome to join this drive too!

If you are working remotely or not local to the APC Raleigh or Charlotte offices, you can still participate by purchasing something from the Crayons2Calculators online wish list. Items range from $5-$35. Their wishlist links can be found below for Amazon and Walmart.

Additionally, you can make a monetary donation on one of these apps:

  • Venmo: @Crayons2Calculators
  • Cashapp: $Crayons2Calculators
  • Paypal: @Crayons2Calculators

Our Denver office will support the Denver Language School, a diversity and inclusion-focused school in Denver that one of our team members’ children attends. You can donate to their school here.

The APC Charlotte team will support Catawba Elementary’s “Backpack for Kids” program. Catawba Elementary is a title 1 school in the Charlotte area, and through this program, every Friday, children in need are sent home with backpacks filled with food. You can send food items like large cans of non-perishables, peanut butter, popcorn, crackers, and others directly to either of the below addresses:

  • APC Charlotte Office: 529 W Summit Ave., Suite 3 A, Charlotte, NC 28203
  • CES: 5415 Hudson Chapel Road, Catawba, NC 28609

Our Purpose

APC has always been a proud supporter of education, and this is a fun way we can give back. In fact, did you know that:

  • 94% of US teachers spend their own money on their student’s behalf (National Education Association)
  • Every year teachers on average spend $750 out of pocket on classroom supplies (adoptaclassroom.org)
  • Nationally, teachers earn 19% less than similarly skilled and educated professionals. (National Education Association)

For individuals who are local to APC’s Raleigh and Charlotte offices, you can drop supplies off in person at our branches located at:


  • 8200 Brownleigh Dr., Raleigh, NC 27617


  • 529 W Summit Ave.,Suite 3 A, Charlotte, NC 28203
