Sonia Jenkins, specialist with the McKinney-Vento program in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, was our guest speaker at the October meeting of Assistance League of Charlotte. Sonia announced some disturbing facts of the number of homeless children in Charlotte. More than 4,700 students are considered homeless in our district. Sonia thanked ALC for the service we provide for these children. Our chapter provides hygiene kits, socks, underwear, napkins and uniforms to the Homeless Closet which Jenkins oversees.
