Belk Helps Local Schools
To celebrate its 125th anniversary, Belk committed to 125 days of service March 10-July 12 at schools in communities where Belk department stores are located. Belk of Crabtree Mall targeted Stough Elementary in Raleigh; 100 employees worked on front entrance landscaping, built large planter benches, painted a world map and made improvements in the teacher's lounge on April 24, 2013. Belk of Triangle Town Center sent 40 employees to Durant Road Elementary in Raleigh May 1, 2013, to create a walking trail from the road to the front of the school.
Additional projects are planned for Southwest Elementary School in Durham, where Belk employees from the Streets at Southpoint Mall will volunteer June 11, 2013, and Dillard Drive Elementary in Cary, where Belk employees from Cary Towne Center will work on improvement projects June 18, 2013.
Belk is partnering with Points of Light, the world's largest organization devoted to volunteer service, and chooses schools based on specific needs.
