Charity of the Day: A Child's Place

A Child’s Place provides support for homeless children in Mecklenburg County. There are about 3,000 homeless kids in Mecklenburg County, in EVERY school in CMS. Its United Way Funding was cut by 32%, about $60,000. A Child's Place has been able to retain its staff, but is trying to squeeze in other places. —Rachel Clapp, WCNC

Here's how you can help.
 

 

$10    After school snacks for two homeless children for a week so we know they’ll have something to eat
$25    A school uniform for a homeless child to go to school dressed like his/her classmates
$50    A dental visit for a homeless child to get a painful tooth filled so he/she can focus in class
