Non-profit organization Least of These Carolinas is asking for your help. Launched in 2013 inside a church, they have grown exponentially. They have moved offices more than once and space is still getting tighter. The organization has become an important part of the foster care community, and Executive Director Susanna Kavanaugh is hoping to provide them with a more permanent home. “We have the opportunity to purchase a building of our own with little to no debt,” she says. “But we are short about $20,000 and are trying to raise that by January 31.” The goal is to pay cash for the property and not have to finance it.

Least of These Carolinas provides a multitude of services for the foster care community in Gaston, NC and the surrounding areas. They provide clothes and other necessary items, recruit foster parents, and give money for extracurricular activities. Additionally, they give foster kids new shoes during back to school times and provide “Life Boxes” to older teens,  which include materials for beginning college or entering the workforce.

Least of These also hosts a summer camp for kids in the foster care system. They also organize and sponsor “Be the Difference,” a foster awareness concert. Each Christmas they have an event to provide Christmas gifts for foster children. They have been supporting kids for years, and now they need your support.

If you would like to donate to their new home, you can visit their website at lotcarolinas.com or mail a check to 469 Hospital Drive, Gastonia, NC 28054
