How we help
Since our beginning in 1987, Good Friends Charlotte has been helping disadvantaged individuals in Mecklenburg County. With your tax-deductible contribution, we can continue this tradition and make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.
How Your Contributions Help Our Community
$25 will pay co-payments for medications for patients with diabetes, asthma, heart conditions, a severe infection, or a combination of illnesses.
$50 will pay for two medical uniforms for a new hire to begin working as a Certified Nursing Assistant.
$100 will stop an electrical, gas or water disconnection for a family with children.
$150 will purchase a re-conditioned stove to assist a family who does not have a stove.
$200 will purchase a crib and mattress for a baby to have a safe sleeping arrangement.
$250 will serve as a down payment for a child to receive dental repairs for advanced tooth decay.
$500 will purchase a dining room set, sofa and bedding for a family who has no furniture.
Good Friends Charlotte has a tradition of returning to the community, 100% of all monies raised at the annual luncheon. Good Friends welcomes contributions to our Administrative/Operations Fund to help support our program, distribution and operation costs.
