2022 Tree Lighting
to Benefit Read and Feed

9 November 2022

Waverly Place is excited to share this year’s Tree Lighting will benefit Read and Feed. This organization strives to strengthen literacy skills among underserved elementary school children and provide meals in a nurturing neighborhood environment. Join us in supporting their mission! Bring new and gently used books intended for children in grades K-5 to donate during our Tree Lighting event. Books honoring diverse backgrounds and experiences, including stories by and about people of color. Bilingual books (Spanish/English) are also greatly appreciated.

A donation site will be located in The Park area of the Waverly Place center during the Tree Lighting event.

*NOTE: Read and Feed CANNOT accept torn or otherwise damaged books, board books, textbooks, dictionaries, thesauruses, nor books overtly religious in nature. 

Waverly Place Welcomes Back
Dewey’s Holiday Store

8 November 2022

Waverly Place is excited to welcome back Dewey’s Holiday Store!

Dewey’s Bakery and the Athens Drive High School Band Program have partnered to bring the Dewey’s Holiday Store back to Waverly Place! Through this unique fundraising partnership, Dewey’s generously donates a portion of the season’s sales to the Athens Drive Band Program. This year’s donations will fund the band’s May 2023 appearance in the National Memorial Day Parade in Washington, DC as well as student scholarships, instrument purchases and repairs, specialized instructors, and other operational costs.

The store will feature a variety of Dewey’s packaged holiday favorites (Moravian cookies, traditional sugar cakes, cheese straws, etc.) as well as other North Carolina brands like 321 Coffee, Chad’s Carolina Corn, and Lew Wilson Art.

We’re also excited to have the Athens Drive High School Band as one of our performers at the upcoming 2022 Tree Lighting event on Friday, November 18, 5:30pm-9:00pm.
