Charlotte Observer


More than two hundred teenagers — mostly from south Charlotte, Weddington, Waxhaw and Fort Mill — participated in a day of service, volunteering at four nonprofit organizations in Charlotte: Crisis Assistance Ministry, Sow Much Good, Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina and The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club of Greater Charlotte.

Dustin Cheney, 17, was assigned to visit the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club of Greater Charlotte, an organization that provides fun, safe and constructive environments for kids and teens. “We started out playing dodge ball with the kids.

I am very thankful for the opportunity to spend time with the boys and girls.” Full Article
