STEELE CREEK NEWS
Community and Government Groups at Annual Meeting
2011) A variety of local non-profit organizations and local
government agencies will be providing information about their
programs and services at the 2011 meeting of the Steele Creek
Residents Association on Thursday evening, March 3 at Southwest
Middle School (13624 Steele Creek Rd, behind the library).
Attendees can meet
and mingle during the
pre-meeting from 6:30 to 7:00 and again after the speakers talk from 8:00
until as long as folks are willing to talk. This will be a great
opportunity to meet your neighbors and learn about Steele Creek
programs and organizations.
STEELE CREEK OUTREACH
will be collecting items to make goody bags for the street homeless
(the ones that do not go to homeless shelters). They will be
collecting hand wipes, juice boxes, pudding cups/applesauce, spoons,
cereal bars, chapstick, lotion, individual snacks, and
any other individually wrapped items that people would like to
donate. This is one of many Steele
Creek Outreach charitable projects.
CHARLOTTE-MECKLENBURG ANIMAL CARE AND CONTROL, in
partnership with the Second Harvest Food Bank, will be collecting
dry and canned food for dogs, cats, puppies and kittens for the
Pet Food Bank. The objective is to help families keep
their pets rather than bringing them to the Animal Shelter because
they can't afford to feed them. Animal Care and Control is located
at the northern edge of Steele Creek on Byrum Drive.
Other groups expected to attend are:
Museum and Archives of the Carolinas/Military Officers Association
Berewick Recreation Center
Carolinas Medical Center-Steele Creek
Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation
Charlotte Department of Engineering (Dixie River Road Project)
Cub Scout Pack 80 (Pleasant Hill Presbyterian Church)
McDowell Nature Center and Preserve
Morningstar United Methodist Church
Winget Recreation Center
Steele Creek Library
Steele Creek YMCA
All Association dues
collected this year will be donated to the Steele Creek Youth
Network, a program for at-risk youth in Steele Creek. The
Association has donated approximately $700 from Association dues
collected in the last two years to Steele Creek Youth Network.
Folks learn about programs and organizations at the 2010 meeting.
