Our neighbors who come to Crisis Assistance Ministry for help are hard workers. They know how to stretch a dollar beyond the breaking point. But the odds are often stacked against them. Any small thing can send the budget spiraling out of control. That’s when you come in. Just a few minutes and a few dollars from you now can change their lives in that moment of crisis.
A great playlist can help keep the memories going, and a playlist is another budget-friendly way to enjoy summer. The money you save can go farther in your gift to help your neighbors in Charlotte-Mecklenburg #savehome by meeting their basic needs, providing emergency financial assistance toward rent or utility bills, household goods and appliances.
There’s still plenty summer fun that can ease you into late August and early September – without breaking the bank. Take a look at our suggestions, and then take a moment to make a gift to help save home for other families.
With a few precious weeks of summer left, it’s time to get out there and celebrate summer with this list of inexpensive summer adventures close to home—some even in your own backyard. Bonus: since they won’t break the bank, you’ll have a little left to #savehome for more families during #CLTSavesHome, our Non-Event fundraiser, by August 31.
