In the community center we also have a dream of having a local thrift store where we can cloth the poor, help single parent households, and also provide an opportunity to our city to donate un used items for a great good, all while striving to maintain the dignity of the people.
We also realize that buildings and community centers can breed change. One of the benefits of having a community center, is the ability to be more active in the communities by being in the very presence of the people.
Too often we build buildings and have a “come to me” mentality, and that is challenging when making an impact for a community. Pursuing the beautiful people of east charlotte is something we want to continue to do and something at having a community center will help enable us to do. We never want to loose sight of that, and we will always find a way to keep that as one of our core values.
Not only can we inspire our youth, but we can also provide jobs for our local community whether it’s teaching classes, organizing team sports, or helping maintain the community center.
