CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The mission of Communities in Schools is to empower students to stay in school and achieve in life.
Each year the organization serves 6,000 students in our community in 43 Charlotte Mecklenburg schools with the greatest need and the fewest resources.
In an effort to fund it's mission, each year, the organization holds a Dine Out For Kids event. This year it will be held on Tuesday, June 17th. Dozens of restaurants agree to donate a portion of their sales to Communities in Schools that day.
