Assistance League of Charlotte
October 25, 2012

As a Board Member/Volunteer of Assistance League of Charlotte, and a very active volunteer within the Charlotte community all my adult life, I can honestly say this is a group of dedicated volunteers unlike any group or organization I have encountered. before. They work hard, they are frugal with their funds and their hearts are in the right place. Does Assistance League of Charlotte change lives? You bet we do. We clothe children in uniforms and warm winter coats so they can fit into their school classes, We fill hungry bellies with nutritious snacks so they can concentrate on their studies. We turn lives around by giving a teen a second chance to right a wrong. We give scholarships to deserving students so college becomes a reality. We waste nothing as we reach out to other organizations in our Outreach program. I tell each and every person who will slow down long enough to listen about Assistance League of Charlotte, what we do, why we do it and how they can help.

Assistance League of Charlotte
July 14, 2012

Assistance League of Charlotte volunteers are a group of hard-working people with the biggest hearts in the city. I was first drawn to them through a newspaper article about their program, Operation Check Hunger. In this day and age, children shouldn't go hungry, and here was this organization making sure they didn't. Daily during the school year, Assistance League of Charlotte provides snacks to send home with thousands of children so they can attend to their studies without an empty tummy. WOW! I wanted to be a part of that group. While that is the program that drew me to Assistance League, I met with them and was taken aback with their other programs. Many, many hours go into support of Operation School Bell, Operation Check Hunger, Mecklenburg County Teen Court, Scholarships, Outreach and into running the Thrift Store which is the primary source of funding for the programs. While working hard, volunteers have fun yet never lose focus of the goals of feeding, clothing, mentoring and educating at risk children and their families in the community.
