TIME TO UNITE – Charlotte Greek Picnic 2013 Service Initiative
In a time where innovation is needed to bring growth to our economy and respective communities, the Charlotte Greek Picnic 2012 will host the Service Initiative TIME TO UNITE. This event will be held at Marshall Park in Charlotte, NC.
The Charlotte Greek Picnic service initiative will provide the ideal opportunity for all to G.I.V.E. (Get Involved, Volunteer & Experience). TIME TO UNITE has three (3) components:
- TIME to Educate will encourage all patrons to donate school supplies and children books. Additionally, this initiative helps fund the public school systems nationwide and raises awareness of the social, educational, and economic importance of extra-curricular activities. Today, public education systems across the nation have cut their budgets, leading to; increased student to teacher ratios, decreased high school graduation rates and cutbacks on jobs and extracurricular activities such as: music, art, dance (step teams) and sports programs. TIME to Educate seeks to garner support by spotlighting these educational inadequacies to the picnic participants.
- TIME to Give will provide a fun and energizing opportunity for all businesses, organizations and individuals to give back by volunteering for the Charlotte Greek Picnic. T.I.M.E. – Taking Initiative Moving Efficiently, LLC (www.TIMEtoEmpower.com) has also invited local students to perform in the Charlotte Greek Picnic Step Show. The students chosen by T.I.M.E. will have exemplified positive and outstanding academic achievement.
