The Charlotte chapter is a group of hardworking, fun loving volunteers whose work has a huge impact on local students with new clothing (School Bell), peer counseling (Teen Court) and school snacks. Members and guests attend philanthropic programs together such as the Empty Bowl Luncheon and sponsor the splendid annual fundraising fashion show. And the Thrift Shop!It is decorated and managed like a small,high quality department store with donations from the public. The stock is fresh and items seasonal, and they do not waste anything, by donating those items that do not sell to other organizations. It has been a privilege to meet so many women dedicated to making a difference in the lives of young people.
