Stories From Around A Better World

Thank you to the Carolina Panthers and Chris Manhertz, who awarded us with a $25,000 donation from the Players Impact Committee yesterday at A Better World! We were honored to be chosen and look forward to continuing our mission of uplifting undeserved youth in our community!

This year, our students put on an Easter celebration that included every single student at A Better World! The play was written by Ms. Harper, with poetry done by Ms. Bates’ class and a dance performance by students of all ages.

Thank you to everyone came out to support A Better World at our 18th annual golf tournament! It wasa beautiful day on the course and we set a fundraising record, which all goes towards providing a safe, productive after-school program for kids in our community. The photographs for the event can be found by clicking here. Make sure to tag A Better World on Facebook and Instagram when you share them! A very special thank you to Sonic Automotive, Forest Hill Church, Signs Now, Panera Bread and Bojangles for sponsoring!
