CLC Hubs at elementary schools

eTradeWire News/10556229
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - eTradeWire -- CLC (Charity League of Charlotte) has created Hubs in two Charlotte Mecklenburg elementary schools, Sterling and Hidden Valley. CLC created a new mission to impact the lives of Charlotte children by inspiring them to bridge the opportunity gap and achieve a positive future through education and total wellness. This new mission took the direction of creating the Hubs.

CLC Hubs are located in schools with the highest homeless and poverty rate and are stocked with items requested by the principal, teachers and social workers at the designated school. Items provided to the Hubs include clothing, hygiene items, educational supplies and more. They are working now to expand the program to other schools. An upcoming Spring Tea Fundraiser, along with requests for corporate grants, will help fund future Hubs.

"I just want to say thank you to everyone. CLC has been such a wonderful group to offer such extended support to my staff. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much!" Daniel Gray, Principal of Hidden Valley Elementary.

"Charity League of Charlotte has generously donated time, organizational skills and monetary contributions by establishing a HUB at our school. Volunteers come by every couple of weeks and organize our clothes closet and re-stock items that are needed. It allows students to have the comfort and confidentiality of receiving new, clean clothes, whenever necessary. They are also working with our Media teacher on scheduling our next book fair and getting book donations for the school. We are grateful for all of the support the CLC provides to our school!" said Dr. Emily Miles, Principal of Sterling Elementary.
