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.

I have worked with children all my working career, as a teacher and a children's librarian. When I heard about Assistance League of Charlotte's mission to improve the lives of children in Charlotte, I knew this was an organization that I could wrap my arms around. Assistance League members raise money for the organization's philanthropic programs by volunteering in its retail thrift shop at 3600 S. Tryon St. and through other fund-raising activities. Then members have an opportunity to see this money in action. From being a personal shopper assisting a child (1800 children this school year) choose new school clothes in its Operation School Bell program), to sorting snacks (3,000 each school day) for delivery to elementary schools to alleviate hunger in its Operation Check Hunger program, to working with first-time offenders in its teen court program, to awarding college scholarships (over $25,00 last year), Assistance League is making a difference in so many lives in Charlotte. Working alongside the wonderful women that belong to this organization is icing on the cake!

I recently joined the Assistance League of Charlotte and am overwhelmed by all of the great work they do to help people in the community. The volunteers are so commited to the mission of this organization. They donate a tremendous amount of time to run the thrift shop and do many special programs such as Operation School Bell, Teen Court and Baubles and Bags that positively impact the community. I am proud to be part of such a great team.

I joined Assistance League of Charlotte on the recommendation of a friend at church after my retirement. The services provided to the community are awesome! My favorite program is Operation School Bell, clothing elementary school children from uniform schools. These kids will melt your heart with their smiles, hugs and heartfelt thanks. My "grown-up" interaction is helping in the Thrift Shop and on our work Mondays when we process donations received as well as serve on the Marketing Committee. These activities give you the opportunity to meet and be with the membership overall and you couldn't find a better group to be associated with. Dedicated, hardworkers, fun - and we achieve our mission/goals to the community.

A wonderful service organization serving the community from clothing elementary school children for school to providing college scholarships to the "needy" but excellent high school students. Also makes a big difference in the live's of young kids who get into trouble with the law enforement. First time offenders are allowed to clear their records though Teen Court.

This dedicated group of member volunteers, with help from committed community non-members, works exceedingly hard to make our community a better place for all. Helping every child to succeed is more than a mission statement, it is way of life for these individuals who feed, clothe, mentor and educate at risk children in our area.

I work as a news anchor at WBTV and I'm involved in lots of efforts to help Charlotte at risk youth. One of my favorite organizations is Assistance League of Charlotte. The work these volunteers do-- changes lives. I am always moved when it's time for operation school bell. The joy and pride you see on these youngster's faces stays with you year round. Through their school bell efforts you children who otherwise wouldn't have the proper uniforms are able to go to school with new clothing, a warm coat and the grooming supplies that will make them feel confident and ready to learn. I have never met a volunteer who didn't have those young kids at the center of her heart. The AL thrift shop is one of my favorite second hand s hops in town. I am always so impressed with the volunteers who work in the shop. They are always enthusiatic, attentive and engergized. It makes the experience of shopping there fun! I wish I could spend more time with the AL of Charlotte. It's the kind of organization that makes me feel good and know I'm making a difference!!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

(NOT SURE WHAT THIS MEANS?)

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the bright happy faces of the children we've helped.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

compassionate and kind, giving of themselve, and sympathetic to the needs of the children.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand and help more kids with their love and kindness.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

I was really just dropping some stuff off, or at least that is how it started... But the problem is, the people who volunteer at Assistance League of Charlotte are just so nice, they sort of suck you into a conversation. They're excited about what they do, and that rubs off on the people they talk to. So when I realized that I might be of some assistance, it didn't take long for me to want to help... That was almost a year ago. And in that time, I've come to realize that even making a little difference, can mean a lot to the right person. That time volunteered, doesn't mean that the work is unrewarding. And being part of something good, can actually be something great.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the faces of people, who for the first time, are getting the chance to step into a world that most of us take for granted - the world of technology.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have to have a much better understanding of the organization as a whole, before I started to make recommendations.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the people... They are what got me interested, and they are what keep me coming back.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly, excited, pleasant, accepting, helpful... basically - the best.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

... it would.... help more people. They've got the basics down.. They help. They help a lot of people. So more money will allow them to expand the programs they already have, and maybe a few more that just aren't possible right now.

Ways to make it better...

... nothing... It's been a great experience.. Any complaints I might come up with are petty little things that really don't matter.. (it's cold in winter - so what. it's hot in summer - same response. And this is the best I can come up with).

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

finding enough room to get all the donated materials into view of potential customers.

One thing I'd also say is that...

.. I have nothing to put here...

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
