Welcome New Board Members

Alliance for Children welcomed new board member Lauren Williams and UCPS designee, Dr. Cynthia Hogston to the first 2019-2020 board meeting of the year on September 25th.  They were given a brief overview of the programs that we provide to children in areas of health, education and family support.

For the month of October, each time a $2.50 reusable Community Bag is purchased at the Bi-lo located at 1642 Dickerson Blvd. Monroe, NC , $1 will be donated to Alliance for Children.

The Community Bag  empowers customers to make a difference in the communities they live and work in while helping the environment. With each purchase of a reusable Community Bag with the Giving Tag, customers can direct a $1 donation to the non-profit of their choice to benefit the work a local charity is doing in their community. The specially designed reusable bags are from recycled materials, and can be found at registers and on the reusable bag rack at all BI-LO
