WHY: For the second year in a row, Cricket is one of the top sponsors of Rebuilding Together, a leading, national, non-profit organization dedicated to bringing volunteers and communities together to revitalize communities across the country. Cricket’s main goal is to rehabilitate and revitalize homes, schools or community centers for residents living in the communities in which the company operates.

The City of Charlotte as well as Belmont residents and visitors as a whole will benefit from improvements made to the neighborhood. Renovations to the four homes will also demonstrate the help Charlotte residents and families will be receiving through the new affiliate, Rebuilding Together of the Carolinas, located in Charlotte. This project marks the launch of the national charity’s newest affiliate, an organization which will serve the Charlotte community by engaging volunteers and corporate sponsors to deliver critical home renovations and services to local homeowners-in-need in an effort to stabilize and preserve the neighborhoods of Charlotte. A true measure of philanthropic efforts, a host of experts and community members are involved in this kick off project, including Cricket, Lowe’s and Wells Fargo. Additional partners have offered their support in this venture, including the Belmont Community Development Corporation and St. Paul’s Baptist Church.
