WCNC has teamed up with IKEA for a Teacher Appreciation Event on Friday, Aug. 9 at IKEA in north Charlotte.

The event begins at 9:30 a.m. with free offerings for the first 300 teachers in attendance. The event continues through 4 p.m. and will include additional raffles and workshops for teachers throughout the day.

School supplies will also be collected. The public can donate school supplies to benefit Classroom Central.  Every dollar donated to Classroom Central is turned into $9 worth of school supplies distributed into our community.
