Help A Child In Need


Supporting Families in Need

Every season we provide gifts, clothing and food to Charlotte and surrounding area families struggling to make ends meet.

Helping Local Schools

We help stock classrooms with school supplies and feed hungry students.

Investing in our Community

97¢ of every dollar raised goes back to helping families in our community get back on their feet.

“Thanks” for “Giving”

Dinner Drive

Kids First of the Carolinas & Wells Fargo are teaming up to help feed local families in need this Thanksgiving! For under $50.00, you can feed an entire family a very special dinner & give them the Thanksgiving they deserve.

Come To The Table

A Summer Food Program for Kids

Kids First is pleased to announce a partnership with Dr. Adam Augenstein, board certified plastic surgeon with Aesthetic Surgery of Charlotte. Dr. Augenstein has been looking for a grass roots charity to partner with to make a difference in our community. Dr. Augenstein and Kids First will work together to support the Kids First summer feeding program benefiting school aged children in our community. Please help us put a healthy meal on the table for these children.
