Cupcake Collects School Supplies to Benefit WINGS for Kids Students


Charleston’s Sweet Spot Exchanges Cupcake Tokens for Needed Curricular Items

Cupcake Down South has teamed up with WINGS for Kids in a Lowcountry collaboration with a goal to collect school supplies that will benefit local children in the WINGS for Kids program. Donations will be accepted from August 4-17 at Cupcake’s King St. and Mount Pleasant locations. For every three items a person donates, they will receive one of Cupcake’s signature wooden tokens that are good for a free cupcake.

The items on WINGS’ Top 10 Most Needed School Supplies List include: pencils, markers, crayons, colored pencils, hula-hoops, kick-balls, basketballs, soccer balls, kid-size running shoes, and white/black kid-size T-shirts.
