Charlotte – League Dresses Youth for Success

(NBC News) It’s a Monday morning at the Assistance League of Charlotte, North Carolina and the donations are pouring in.  In a back room at the league, a huge room is set up as a department store consignment shop to provide in their many charitable efforts.

Susan Brackett, President of the Assistance League of Charlotte, said “our focus is for them to be well dressed and equal to their peers so that they can concentrate on their education”.

Not only does the league provide free clothing for needy children year in and out, they also provide a life changing program to give youth a second chance.  The aim of the program is to keep teens out of courtrooms and jail through positive peer pressure and responsible decisions.
