Angels School Store Gearing Up----In Need of Donations

The Charlotte White Center Angels Program is a community based outreach program that seeks to improve the well being of children and adults in our community through projects designed to develop spirit, pride, and personal responsibility.  Every year we sponsor a School Store.  The Store opens for one week each year for children to come in and shop, filling their “back to school needs”.  Although most of our shoppers acutely need this help to be ready for the school year, we choose to emphasize life skills and personal responsibility, rather then need.  Children are given a special “checkbook”, in which they can make deposits through doing good deeds throughout the month prior to the store opening.  When a child visits the school store, they then receive Charlotte White Center cash for the good deeds that they have done.  The child then gets to do their back to school shopping. In addition to school supplies, each child is able choose four items of clothing free of charge.  In 2010, the Angels Program was able served over 300 children with the School Store project.  Below is the CWC Angels School Store wish list, these items are what we need to make this project a reality.  For 11 years it has been the generosity of community members that builds this program and keeps it running.
