The Research Triangle Park (RTP) invites you to participate in our 2012 Back-to-School Drive. RTP has partnered with Communities In Schools of Durham and Wake counties in an effort to provide backpacks filled with essential school supplies for low-income children in the Research Triangle community. We are pleased to open participation to all RTP companies and employees interested in contributing towards this effort.
How Can You Help?
There are a number of ways individuals working for companies in RTP can participate.
- Simply shop for a new backpack and/or any of the school supplies on this form and drop them off (with a completed donation form) Monday-Friday from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM at The Research Triangle Park Headquarters, 12 Davis Drive (directions). Or talk with your HR rep to learn if your company is collecting supplies on-site.
- Visit our Amazon.com wishlist to purchase items and have them sent directly to us. Be sure to include the name of your company in the gift note so we know which company you work for.
- Don't have time to shop? Consider giving a tax-deductible donation (via check) with which the Research Triangle Foundation will purchase needed items on your behalf (monetary donations can only be accepted at The RTP Headquarters drop-off location). Cash donation form.
- If you prefer to mail your contribution, please send a check made payable to “Durham-Wake Counties Research and Production Service District” at 12 Davis Drive, RTP, NC 27709. Please indicate if you would like to receive a receipt for tax deduction purposes.
