  • An Amazon Prime subscription to aid in retail therapy 

  • A take-out meal for two from a local Charlotte restaurant (don’t forget to tip!)

“He who has health, has hope; and he who has hope, has everything.”- Thomas Carlyle

The status of our health influences almost every other aspect of our lives, and without good health many things around us tend to crumble- hope included. Luckily, there are local nonprofits that work hard to keep our community, and in particular some our most vulnerable neighbors, cared for and in good health. 

Throughout May, we will be shining our #SpotlightOnCLT, presented by the Amy and Brian France Foundation, on our nonprofit partners who are caring for our neighbors in need and going above and beyond during these unprecedented times when our health is in more jeopardy than potentially ever before.

Ross Danis admits he teared up when he learned Meck Ed was getting a check for $1,000 from the Carolina Panthers.

“I could just cry. When you run a nonprofit and you get a call like that, especially these days, it really did bring a tear to my eye,” Danis says.

Meck Ed works with high school seniors at some of Charlotte’s most challenged high schools getting them college and career ready. 

This Charlotte nonprofit was one of more than 30 regional organizations that got the unexpected phone call from the Panthers - all thanks to a celebration of the NFL’s 100th anniversary season last year.
