How are we doing?

So far this school year we have had over 200 teacher visits, redistributed over $32,000 worth of school supplies, and had 68 volunteers at the Classroom Closet.  Below is a graphic of the most popular school supplies distributed by the Classroom Closet in the first half of the 2016-2017 school year.

Stage Struck

The 2016 Stage Struck show was a success!  We had over 300 student performers from all around ABSS.  We netted $8,000 which will go back into the schools through our Arts Grants program, as well as support ACE programs such as the Classroom Closet.  Thank you to all supporters, and congratulations to all performers!


Our first annual Touch-A-Truck event was a success! We had about 500 people come out to explore, climb on, and touch all kinds of cool vehicles from across the county. A huge thank you to our sponsors and participants! The donations we raised will be used in our Classroom Closet program to help teachers in ABSS stock their classrooms with supplies needed for their students to learn.

ACE was awarded a grant from Impact Alamance for work in organizational assessment and capacity building. The staff, board of directors and consultants from UNCG’s SERVE Center have been busy evaluating programs, policies and procedures with the goal of improving and enhancing our core infrastructure. We are working together to develop a plan where we can further our mission in a more impactful and meaningful way.
