Safety Town is a cherished Concord tradition that provides rising kindergarteners with age-appropriate safety rule experiences in a fun and unique format. Police officers, firefighters, and volunteers from the Red Cross teach bus, gun, and fire safety, just to name a few. During this free half-day camp, League volunteers supervise the students as they rotate through each class.
Clothes from the Heart
Clothes from the Heart is the League’s annual campaign to collect funds for the Mariam C. Schramm Clothing Room. League members mail information to family and friends, asking for donations that will help clothe a child in need. Proceeds allow the League to purchase more clothing for the Clothing Room.
Student Eyeglass Program
Each year, the League partners with the Cabarrus Health Alliance and school nurses to provide eye exams and glasses to students in Cabarrus County. This program assists approximately 50 children who might otherwise go without eye care.
The Mariam C. Schramm
The Mariam C. Schramm Clothing Room serves economically disadvantaged children in Cabarrus County and Kannapolis City Schools. During school visits, volunteers are on hand to help students choose appropriate sizes, distribute toiletries, and watch the smiles happen in person. School counselors and social workers can schedule visits from mid-September through January.
