*The Charlotte Community Partnership began in April 2020 in response to the Covid pandemic. The purpose was to assess what was working, what was needed, and how best to support one another in the pandemic. Initial participants included: the Library, Senior Center, the Grange, Charlotte Congregational Church, Mt. Carmel Catholic Church, Fire and Rescue, and the Food Shelf. This VaxHelp campaign is an initial effort of our community resilience project. Stay tuned for details about the resilience assessment results and community engagement.
