In this time of need for many people in the Charlotte metro area, one organization stands out above the rest. The Community Matters Cafe, which is part of the Charlotte Rescue Mission, is helping to restore faith for those who're less fortunate.

Community Matters is a volunteer-driven nonprofit organization that provides unique philanthropic opportunities for insurance and risk management professionals in the greater Charlotte area. The purpose is to show that “community matters” by focusing on real community needs through fundraising events, work days, educational opportunities and much more.

The cafe was set up to reinforce the essential life skills students are learning and showing them the value of a working together. 

Listen to how Tony Marciano, Ed Price and Jenny Villapando are changing the lives of others through this outstanding program.
