Assistance League of Charlotte
November 4, 2012

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!
