NFL linebacker Shaq Thompson is leading an effort to raise money and awareness for the local Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs. “Shaq Thompson’s Tackles for Kids” is a pledge campaign based on his season-long on-field performance.
Sixty years ago, an open air, Salvation Army meeting caught the attention of 8-year-old Paula Hester as she was walking down the street with her mother. Since that time, she has been active in The Salvation Army.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte are a safe place to learn and grow – all while having fun. It is the place where great futures are started each and every day. Our mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need it most to reach their full potential as productive, caring, resonsible citizens.
