Message from Our President:
Hello. My name is Meredith Harris and I am excited to be the President of Junior Charity League of Concord for the 2022-2023 school year. I am a Charlotte native, I attended Meredith College in Raleigh and work for a large financial company. I am married to Brad, and we have two boys Grayson (6) and Andrew (4). We have live in Harrisburg with our black lab mix that we rescued a few years ago. In my, very rare, spare time I love to read and work on my flowers.
I originally joined the league as a way to meet new people in the community. However over the last six years JCL has become a true passion of mine. I love being able to volunteer and make an immediate difference. I truly enjoy serving in the clothing room and helping kids pick out NEW clothes and try them on. Seeing the joy and gratitude on their faces is incredible.
We are SOOO excited to have the Clothing Room open again this year!! While Covid didn’t stop is from serving the kids… it is so much more fun to have them there in person. There are many new members that have NEVER clothed a REAL child in the Clothing Room. At the last meeting we did a short walk thru and they were very excited to get started. As we look forward, my goals for the league this year are to continue to grow the membership thru more social events , word of mouth, and social media. We had another very successful New Member Social at the end of September and are hoping that many of the women in attendance will join the League.
We are looking forward to another great year!
The Junior Charity League of Concord is a thriving organization of volunteers including professional women, homemakers, and business owners with the common goal of assisting local children.
