Assistance League of Charlotte is an all-volunteer organization working hard to help every child succeed by providing thousands of meals and new school uniforms to disadvantaged children, mentoring hundreds of youthful volunteers and first time offenders, and granting more than $30,000 in scholarships each year. A majority of the funds used for the programs are raised through a Thrift Shop which provides high quality items at very reasonable prices.
I am a realitivly new member to AL, I started out as a visitor to the thrift store and absolutely fell in love with the place. The volunteers were so welcoming and were very passionate about sharing what AL is all about. Their enthusiasm was so contagious. I wanted to be a part of it. In my short stint there, I find that weekly I'm blown away by what this orginatization accomplishes for high risk children in our city! The men and women here are focused, organized , fun, and committed to the tasks at hand, ( which are many). This is truly a first class non-profit and I'm very proud to be a part of it.
It is truly an honor to volunteer with Assistance League of Charlotte. Since becoming a member volunteer four years ago, I've been overwhelmed by the ingenuity of our volunteers putting action into play and integrating our five core values - commitment, leadership, ethics, accountability and respect - when responding to individual and community needs. Looking forward to this upcoming year and being a part of this enterprising organization.
Since becoming a member volunteer of Assistance League of Charlotte two years ago I have witnessed the amount of love and dedication this organization has for our community. Our philanthropic programs enable us to make a difference in children's lives and for this we are all rewarded.
As chairman of Operation Check Hunger, one of our main programs, I'm helping children and families in our community who need food assistance. We provide pantries, mobile pantries, send home weekly backpacks and help a special needs school. It is a tremendous organization that can aid so many people each year. Each volunteer member is committed to our various programs.
The Assistance League of Charlotte is the local chapter of the non-profit National Assistance League. Similar to the 120 chapters across the country, ALC is operated by dedicated volunteers and sustained by community donations in order to provide philanthropic programs for local children and their families. It is well organized, well run and full of creative, caring and friendly volunteers. It is an honor to be part of their team and to see first hand the wonderful work they do for our local children. Kudos!
Assistance League of Charlotte is a dynamic organization of men and women joined together to help disadvantaged children. Their slogan “ we feed, we clothe, we mentor, we educate” reflects the realization that children need help in many ways and at each stage of their lives. The Thrift Shop at 3405 South Tryon, the main source of income, is a true treasure chest where people shop for bargains because they enjoy the “hunt for the unusual” or a place to fill the needs of those with limited funds. A friendly place where shoppers and workers a like know they are doing good for their community. I am proud to be a member and urge you to check our our store, our causes, our people and join us there is a lot of work that still needs to be done.
The Assistance League of Charlotte is an incredible volunteer organization helping children at risk in Mecklenburg County. ALC members clothe, feed, mentor and educate through their various philanthropies including Operation School Bell, Operation Check Hunger, Mecklenburg Teen Court and a generous Scholarship Program for example. Funds to underwrite all of these superb efforts come from sales profits at the Assistance League Thrift Shop located at 3405 S. Tryon in Charlotte, NC. This Thrift Store is heads and shoulders beyond any shop of its kind throughout the southeast! The shop is large, well-organized, extremely neat and clean and offers gently used items of all kinds: housewares, clothing for men, women and children, fantastic furniture, books, collectibles, jewelry, linens and bedding, toys.....you name it, they have it! Special sales throughout the year feature reduced items at incredible prices; especially notable is the Bauble and Bags Sale in August that offers hundreds of quality handbags, beautiful jewelry and accessory items that customers wait in line to be the first to enter the store and acquire these once-a-year bargains! Volunteers work tirelessly year around to sort, price and display the donated items and then work hours in the store to assist customers with their shopping.
This non-profit is, without a doubt, one of the finest efforts locally in Charlotte and is one chapter out of many all over the United States that help our children enjoy a happier, healthier, productive future. Membership is rewarding and is open to any caring person who simply wants to make a difference in a needy child's life! Kudos to the Assistance League of Charlotte.
How refreshing to find an organization that does an amazing service to the children of Charlotte! The programs supported by their fabulous thrift shop help to clothe, feed, and educate needy and deserving youth in the Charlotte area. Kudos to this wonderful group of women!
Every ALC member I have met has been delightful and extremely helpful. I am in awe of all of the programs they organize and execute to the benefit of the children in our area. What a wonderful organization, consistently doing good in the community.
we feed, we clothe, we mentor, we educate
As a former seventh grade teacher, I was looking for a place to fit in when we moved to Charlotte four years ago. I was introduced to Assistance League of Charlotte by a friend and I found a perfect fit! I love thrifting and the volunteer run thrift store is more like a consignment store with bargains displayed beautifully. I loved my former students and working with children and seeing their eyes light up when they receive their brand new clothes warms my heart. Knowing we further education with our scholarship program helps me know I am spending my time where I belong. Come join us, shop us, and you'll find a perfect fit too!
Great organization helping the community by giving priority to children. I just love volunteering there.
