Message from The Kids First Board of Directors

Due to the Covid 19 challenges and health concerns in our community, The Kids First Board of Directors has decided, after considerable consideration, that the organization will be taking a sabbatical from all services for the remainder of 2020 and possibly into early 2021. Given the health concerns of our volunteers, supporters and partners and the potential to contribute to the spread of the virus, we feel that this decision is in the best interest of all concerned.

Thank you for your ongoing support and partnership. Kids First of the Carolinas has been serving our communities for over 30 years, serving families and children in the Carolinas.  We have partnered with hundreds of local businesses and thousands of volunteers to serve food, raise money and awareness, and to provide resources to Charlotte and Union County Kids!  We are stronger together! Thanks for all you are and do!  Be at peace and stay healthy!
