Dunkin Ballantyne supports “The Relatives” at their annual fundraising event

The Relatives organization focuses on helping children and young adults in our community by giving them a safe place to stay and helping them transition to independence. They help at-risk children through “a safe place” and operate a short-term crisis assistance center.
Charlotte ranks 50th out of the 50 largest cities for upward mobility. The youth in our community has a worse chance of escaping poverty than at any other city in America. The Relatives guide youths in crisis towards stability and independence in the hope that they can make it out of poverty and become productive citizens or our community.
We believe in their mission and support financially through the delivery of courses at the on-ramp center, delivery of meals to the crisis assistance center, and donuts as an occasional treat.
We attended their annual Breakfast with the Relatives Fundraiser this past Tuesday. The inspiring one-hour event is The Relatives’ only fundraiser of the year.
The goal is to raise critical funds that are needed to continue providing the wide array of programs and services offered to youth and young adults who need safety, stability and a pathway to independence. We were proud to serve as Table Captains.
The event is part of our commitment to give back and to help enrich the lives of those in our community.
