Mark your calendar to enjoy a meal out and help support at-risk students in our community by eating at one of the more than 85 local restaurants participating in Communities in Schools Dine of For Kids. Dine Out For Kids is an annual event that offers area restaurants and their patrons, corporations, and civic and faith-based organization members the opportunity to demonstrate their support for at-risk kids in our community.
Participating restaurants donate a portion of the day’s sales to Communities In Schools, the nation’s leading dropout prevention organization that works to empower Charlotte students to stay in school.
