Back to School: Community Needs and GOOD Ways to Give

Going back to school looks different this year in Mecklenburg County, but the GOOD news is that there are many ways the community can help support our students and educators as we all navigate this new normal, together. Here are our local nonprofit partners who have Back-to-School needs who you can support in a variety of way, right now. 


Urgent Community Needs:


Virtual Volunteer Opportunities:
While donations are deeply appreciated, you can also make an impact and support an organization with your time. If you are looking for after-school projects for your kids or an activity for the whole family- consider virtual volunteering! Below are volunteer opportunities you can do from home.

Wish Lists to Shop Now:
Back to school shopping may look a little different this year, but there is still a major need for supplies. Here is a list of nonprofit organizations that are supporting our community’s youth and educators during this Back to School season- support their work by shopping for the items they need most off of their Amazon wish list.
