Children receive mentoring and tutoring, life-skills instruction and access to supportive community resources. Student U empowers students in Durham Public Schools to own their education by developing the academic skills and personal well-being necessary to succeed in college and beyond. The school supply drive helps to ensure the children are sent to school in the fall with all of the supplies that are essential to their education. Fans donating items will receive a chance to win one of five Hurricanes autographed items. Please visit www.CarolinaHurricanes.com for a list of items needed.
