Rallying for Charlotte families during Covid-19
This is a scary and uncertain time for everyone. And for many of our most vulnerable families, it’s not just scary and uncertain – it’s about making the paycheck stretch another day, and surviving another week. Many of our Charlotte neighbors are worried about affording rent and paying for food, utilities, and other basic necessities.
During this crisis, we have a huge opportunity to be our best – to come together as a community and show we have each other’s backs. That’s why we are launching the Ashley Park Family Relief Fund, where you can donate to help make sure Ashley Park PreK-8 School families have what they need. Ashley Park PreK-8 School is a Title 1 school located in the Camp Greene neighborhood and serves just over 480 students.
The good news is, with the generous support of Wells Fargo, we’re starting with a fund of over $8,000 to provide relief to families. We’ve rolled over funds previously allocated for in-person family engagement events at the school to establish this fund with the Ashley Park PTSA. We’re calling on you to help us provide relief to more families by making a donation.
How the fund works:
Families apply via one of two ways:
- Online application – see it here
- Paper application (accessible at the school)
Applications are reviewed for completion and approved by a small committee of Ashley Park stakeholders including parents, teachers, and staff.
Families are notified about approval for funds, and also connected to other resources in the community that might help meet their current needs.
How you can help:
Please consider expanding the impact of the Ashley Park Relief Fund and increasing the number of Ashley Park families we can reach by making a donation today.

We’re modeling aspects of this relief fund after the REACH Relief Fund and Oakland Reach. We are grateful for their leadership and willingness to share information to make this possible.
