Just as years past, a school-supply drive to support A Child’s Place (ACP) will take place by the Diversity Council.
ACP, started by a group of women in 1989, began when they noticed a group of children playing in a downtown Charlotte cemetery. The women questioned them on why they were not in school, and it turned out they were not allowed to attend since none had a permanent address. From there, the women started to school 27 children in a one room schoolhouse supported by a teacher from CMS and First Presbyterian Church. At this time in 1989, the McKinney-Vento Act was passed. This piece of legislation protects the educational rights of homeless children and delivers them the necessities needed for a proper education. Since the first class was held, ACP has increased its reach and helped 2,656 homeless children during the 2012-2013 school year.
This charitable event strives to erase the impact homelessness has on a child’s education. You can help ensure another successful drive by bringing a variety of school supplies to this year’s Fish Fry entrance. By donating, you will be entered into a special drawing for a free CE class. A list of needed items can be found here.
The night will be filled with fun, food, beer, and live music!
