#SpotlightOnCLT: Military Appreciation

#SpotlightOnCLT: Military Appreciation

#SpotlightOnCLT is SHARE Charlotte’s monthly content series that highlights a different cause or issue each month.  It is one way that we shine a light on various nonprofit organizations as a beacon to help educate the community and explore how to get involved.  

For July, we are highlighting Military Appreciation and all of the many wrap-around services for military veterans and families that Charlotte nonprofits offer.

TreesCharlotte: #SpotlightOnCLT Great Outdoors


Charlotte is known as “The City of Trees” thanks to our city’s remarkable tree canopy. TreesCharlotte actively plants and gives away trees to ensure the continued health and well-being of our canopy and to account for on-going growth and development in our city. Trees clean our air, reduce stormwater run-off, cool our streets, reduce energy usage in our homes, increase property values, and give us beauty.
