Little Smiles-Volunteer Drive

January 22, 2012
Category: Events

Calling All Who Would Like to Help Put a Smile on a Child’s Face

Volunteer Drive for Little Smiles of North Carolina

Who We Are

“Little Smiles” is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that provides toys, games, DVD’s, computers, VIP outings, celebrity meet and greets, concert, sporting event tickets, theme park tickets, fun food runs, nerf gun wars and much, much more…for children in local hospitals, hospices and shelters. We pride ourselves on being local, immediate, and hands on; and our Board of Directors is comprised of all volunteers.

Why We Are Unique and Distinctive...
We Are Local
We Are Immediate

We work side by side with local nurses, child life staff, and medical personnel who determine the immediate needs for each child and family. Little Smiles views the staff who treat the children not only as our partners but as the 'angels' who know the kids, the parents and each special circumstance. We consult with them directly and therefore are able to provide what is needed most. We also interact directly with the kids. Buying a game for a child is wonderful, but playing the game with that child is priceless!

Our Mission

Our mission is to help children escape their everyday pain and allow them to be a kid again, even if it’s for a short period of time. We respond to the needs of the children and provide whatever we can to make their day a little brighter. We help put a smile back on the faces of children who need it most.

If you’re interested in joining our group come to the information meeting on February 3 at 6:30 at the Pelican Café in Cornelius, NC.  RSVP at , leaving your name and email address. Just ask for Little Smiles to learn how you can help put a smile on a child’s face.

Barium Springs Childrens Home School Supplies Drive

July 31, 2011
Category: Philanthropy

As the school year nears, the Barium Springs Childrens Home needs help with supplies for the kids. Children of all ages reside here. Please think about the items that a child would need to learn with and purchase a few. You can drop off at The Nook Coffee Bar and Eatery in Huntersville (located behind Hickory Tavern near Birkdale). The list would include items such as black ink pens, spiral notebooks, 2 pocket folders, crayons, construction paper, playdoh, calculators, mechanical pencils, 3 ring binders and dividers, washable markers, glue sticks, poster board, colored pencils, index cards, flash drives, book bags, kid safe scissors, etc.

There are also infants and toddlers here, so items such as diapers, fruit or vegetable baby food, wipes, bibs, socks, children's books, receiving blankets, etc.

As you can see, the list is long and it is a good cause. I have attached a sheet to show a complete list as well as contact names/numbers. This is a great cause and every cent you spend goes directly to the kids!

Thanks everyone!
