Making a Difference in Charlotte One Cause at a Time

Are you interested in making a difference?

Volunteering can change your life, and through it you will be making positive changes to the lives of others. Join with other Community Matters members, meet people and make new friends while taking on new challenges. Charlotte Rescue Mission (CRM) has reserved six meals each month for Community Matters companies. So we need your help to make our Meals Challenge a success.Serving meals gives you a first-hand look at who CRM is and provides you with the opportunities to get to know some of the folks they serve. Here are the details:

  • To volunteer, you must first create your own individual volunteer profile and have your coworkers do the same. Simply go to, the click the “Sign In” button at the top of the page, which will allow you to either create a new profile or sign in to your existing profile.
  • As noted, Community Matters has six meals reserved each month – four at the Rebound men’s campus uptown and two at the Dove’s Nest women’s campus on West Boulevard. (These opportunities are viewable only from the Community Matters landing page, not in the main volunteer system.)
  • Kids are welcome to serve at Rebound, but must be at least 16 to volunteer at Dove’s Nest.
  • Remember, each volunteer must have their own individual volunteer profile and sign up for each volunteer event. Contact Christy Baker at to discuss setting up events for your entire office.

In addition to meals reserved just for Community Matters, you can sign up for other events that are open to the public by clicking on the “Click Here for Public Events Calendar” button at the bottom of the Community Matters landing page. These opportunitieis include additional meals and assistance in CRM’s classroom with computer and job-readiness classes.
