In late December, Community Matters representatives presented Charlotte Rescue Mission (CRM) with a check for $200,000 at the soon-to-be-open Community Matters Cafe.  The check is Community Matters’ 2018 gift, raised though fundraising by the organization and its member companies.

In addition to CRM leaders, many of the graduates who will be working at the cafe were on-hand for the check presentation.

The cafe will employ these graduates and provide them with business and life skills, while providing community groups with a place where they can meet to discuss other issues facing the city, such as education, homelessness and crime.

Hope to see everyone at the cafe in 2019!
