Resident Goes to
First Baseball Game
When a volunteer donated her Charlotte Knights baseball tickets, she did not realize the impact her gift would have on one of our young residents. Nine-year-old Greg who lives at Catherine's House yearned to go to a baseball game as most little boys do. He saw the stadium as it was being built and asked, "Mommy, will we be able to go there one day?" Greg's mom told him to pray about it, so he did.
Without knowing Greg's wish, a volunteer donated baseball tickets to Catherine's House and his prayer was answered. Because of this donation, Greg's mom was able to take him to his first baseball game at the new Charlotte Knights ballpark. After enjoying the game and exploring the whole stadium, Greg said, "Mommy, this is the best day of my life."
Catherine's House thanks all of our donors who make experiences like this possible for our residents.
Sponsor a Child's
For a donation of $81 to Catherine's House, you can sponsor a week of YMCA summer camp for young resident Greg (mentioned left). Your gift would allow Greg to experience his first summer camp and also provide childcare while his mother attends classes at Gaston College. If you are interested in sponsoring a week of summer camp, please contact Jacki McCarthy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 704-825-9599.
Complete Eye Care
Complete Eye Care in Belmont donated five pairs of sunglasses for the children living at Catherine's House. This thoughtful donation will protect the eyes of our young residents during outdoor summer activities. Thank you Complete Eye Care!
One of our greatest needs is gas station gift cards. These gift cards help our residents travel to job interviews, doctor appointments, etc. See other needed items here.
Belmont 8th Graders
for Catherine's House
Each year at Belmont Middle School, a parent dance committee is formed for the 8th Grade Dance. This year the committee added a King and Queen Contest to raise money for a charity. The students learned about the importance of "giving back" and raised $930 for Catherine's House!
Emma Beaty and Matthew Robinson were crowned for raising the most donations to benefit the women and children living at Catherine's House.
