Do you feel overwhelmed by raising your children but want to support your community? How can you make an impact without giving a huge amount of time or money at this stage of your life?
These questions were exactly what I was feeling a few years ago when I learned about the non-profit Good Friends of Charlotte. I wanted to make an impact but did not have the time to really devote myself to something with my three daughters being so young.
Luckily I found Good Friends! This woman only non-profit started in 1987 and has contributed over $2 million to the disadvantaged of Mecklenburg County.
