The Community Fund, Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department and Charlotte Housing Authority have been distributing book bags and supplies for the new school year – this year nearly $2,000 in all. Nothing compares to the smiles this creates. Does it help? You bet! CHA Case Manager Martie explained that often the children start a new term with nothing and the joy a brand spanking new book bag brings can’t be over stated.
Education is key, knowledge is power and thoughts set you free. All true but knowing that someone cares enough to help you start school in a positive way is beyond words. Martie, VK, Bob and Tonya, the young residents of First Ward salute you. And we salute NCF!
