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.

The Thrift Shop is a treasure trove of items that should be a frequent stop for smart shoppers. I've purchased brand new drapes, handbags, luggage and more at affordable prices. A win win as this is a foundation worthy of our support.

What a wonderful organization! I have been volunteering with Assistance League of Charlotte for almost 11 years. We are dedicated to improving the lives of our community's children and families through five philanthropic programs - we feed, we clothe, we mentor, we educate! The revenue from our fabulous thrift shop helps fund these programs. And, we couldn't do what we do without the support of our grantors and donors. If you're looking for a place to volunteer or make a donation (monetary or goods for our thrift shop) - check us out!

I have been a member of Assistance League for almost nine years, and wouldn't exchange this experience for anything! We feed, clothe, mentor and educate through our community-based philanthropic programs. We really do make a difference every day. Seeing the gratitude in the eyes of a child lets me know it is all worthwhile. If you want to make a difference in our community and make great friends at the same time, this is the organization for you!

An amazing thrift shop - The best in Charlotte! Great selection and terrific prices and the money raised goes back to the community in helping children. All workers are non- paid, volunteering their time and energy to help the needy of Charlotte.

When I first began shopping at ALC I was after the great bargains. After a few months of seeing them working with children and seeing their commitment, I would not shop elsewhere. I tell all my friends to shop there too. My brother uses a computer purchased there. All my grown sons dress pants are purchased at ALC and books. Recently I added to my china pattern at ALC. My sister purchased a unique ruby ring for me at ALC. Their name brand clothing is often new and discounted. ALC makes my shopping trips guilt free because I am participating in their mission!

I have been working for this wonderful volunteer organization for nearly three years. Every day we feed 4000 school children and clothe over 2000 school children annually. We mentor first time teen offenders through our Teen Court Program and awarded $30,000 in scholarships last year. Our funds come from the sales in our highly successful Assistance League Thrift Shop, grant awards and donations. We have only one paid employee so our return to the community is truly exceptional. I am proud to work alongside the more than 150 dedicated and caring volunteer members. We make a difference in our community everyday by filling the needs of children who might otherwise go hungry, not attend school or become crime statistics. My charity of choice is most definitely Assistance League of Charlotte!
