According to a 2014 Harvard study, Charlotte ranks lowest in social
mobility, meaning that poor children in Charlotte are less likely to
escape poverty than those in other large U.S. cities. The mission of
Bright Blessings is to bring joy, care and hope to local homeless and
impoverished children by mobilizing community volunteers of all ages.

“Bright Blessings is thrilled to work together with CompuCom, as we are
funded and supported solely by our community partners. Only through the
support of the community are we able to serve over 10,000 homeless and
impoverished children in the Greater Charlotte region,” said Hannah
Easter, Education and Advancement Associate at Bright Blessings. “We are
extremely grateful for the CompuCom team’s efforts to positively impact
the Charlotte community and help so many children in need.”

CompuCom is sponsoring and creating 1,000 snack packs and 1,000 hygiene
kits that will help Bright Blessings serve children in the local
community. As part of CompuCom’s annual sales conference, held this week
in the company’s Fort Mill, SC headquarters, Sales and Solutions teams
are volunteering time today to assemble snack packs and kits. These will
be sent to 22 Union County and Charlotte-Mecklenburg County public
schools to stock the Care Cupboards at those schools. The Care Cupboards
enable teachers and other school staff access to a snack supply and
basic hygiene items for their students, many of whom are impoverished or
homeless, and would otherwise not have access to these basic needs.

“We’re relatively new to the area and it’s important to our team that we
do our part to help organizations such as Bright Blessings make a
difference in the local community,” noted CompuCom Chief Product Officer
Ken Jackowitz. “Our associates are excited to team up with Bright
Blessings to help improve the lives of local kids.”
About Bright Blessings
Bright Blessings first began in 2005 as a monthly birthday program for
children staying at the Salvation Army Center of Hope in Charlotte,
North Carolina. The organization’s founders, John and Amy Cervantes,
wanted to help brighten the lives of needy children while also
instilling a love and commitment for community service in their own
young children. For nearly three years, the Cervantes family threw
birthday celebrations every month for hundreds of homeless children at
the Center, adding educational and enrichment activities to their
program and also providing the kids with gifts, new books and basic care
essentials.

In March of 2008, the family decided to incorporate their program as a
not-for-profit charity with a twofold mission of engaging volunteers of
all ages to help brighten the lives of needy children across the greater
Charlotte metro area. Today, Bright Blessings remains a volunteer-led
organization that will impact more than 10,000 homeless and impoverished
children this year through its core programs, Bless-A-Birthday,
Bless-A-Baby, Gift of Literacy and Gift of Care. Bright Blessings is a
registered 501c3 nonprofit organization.
