CHARLOTTE, NC  On Monday, January 17, 2011, Bright Blessings hosted a ribbon cutting and kick-off event to commence the up fit process of its new facility located at 608-A Matthews Mint Hill Road, which is scheduled to open to the public on April 10, 2011.

Bright Blessings key partners, sponsors and volunteers, as well as community leaders and media were in attendance.

Bright Blessings is a volunteer-led nonprofit organization serving thousands of homeless children and families across the Greater Charlotte community. Plans for its new facility, The Giving Village, is a concept inspired by the organization’s founding goal of providing relevant, hands-on volunteer opportunities for children—and people of all ages—in a safe, comfortable, and uplifting environment.

The nearly 4,000 square foot facility will be home to the nonprofit’s two main programs, Bless-A-Baby and Bless-A-Birthday, and its many supporting projects, and will host hundreds of volunteers and visitors monthly. Each aspect of the organization and its program services will be brought to life through artistic rendering in the form of a small town operated by its “villagers”—a community of volunteers.

As a volunteer-led organization that now serves over 2,000 homeless children and families across the Greater Charlotte region, this new facility goes to the heart of what Bright Blessings is all about: service to the community, by the community.  The Giving Village will offer visitors and volunteers an opportunity to not only help deliver Bright Blessings’ programs and services to children in need, but also learn how and where they can do even more for our community’s homeless.  With plans for an informative display of its partner agencies, Bright Blessings aims to help others learn about the rise in family homelessness and the many needs its agency partners have beyond what Bright Blessings helps fulfill. Together, we can all make a huge impact.
