It's that time of year again. In a couple of weeks, Charlotte students will be heading back to school. The cost of new school supplies can be overwhelming and for some families it is simply impossible to provide. This year, we decided to sponsor 8 local students from families in need through Hope Match and their school supply drive. Our goal was to fulfill the supply lists of 4 students through monetary and supply donations and the managing principals would match those donations to sponsor the other 4. Our employees went above and beyond and we have surpassed this goal by providing enough donations to sponsor all 8 children, allowing 5 more children to be sponsored through the contribution of our managing principals! We are so elated to know that 13 children will be going back to school with the supplies they need, all personalized to them. Thank you, to everyone who donated and to Hope Match for this opportunity.
Hope Match is a local Charlotte charity that provides donations to families in need through events just like the school supply drive. We came to know them this last Christmas season when we were given the opportunity to participate in their gift drive and sponsor a family. It has been such a pleasure working with the organization and we look forward to more events!
