Trace Adkins – Country Music Star Unveils Renovated Charlotte Community Center

Country music star Trace Adkins is rolling up his sleeves next week to help revitalize Charlotte’s Urban Ministry Center (UMC). After a nationwide vote, the UMC was chosen to receive up to $50,000 worth of much needed renovations from Drops of Good: The Maxwell House Community Project.

The UMC offers vital services such as a soup kitchen, dental care, showers and laundry, while also providing temporary shelter, substance abuse treatment and education to the community in hopes of ending homelessness. In partnership with Rebuilding Together of the Carolinas, Maxwell House will renovate the multi-purpose room to create more office space, upgrade the art studio and bathrooms, replace broken doors and windows, and build new gardens and outdoor seating.

Maxwell House launched year two of “Drops of Good” to inspire hope and bring change to struggling neighborhoods by revitalizing crucial community centers. Americans voted online and selected three of 10 deserving centers to receive the makeover of a lifetime, and the UMC is one of the three selected.

Trace Adkins will lend a hand to volunteers and help unveil the new renovations at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on July 24 at Noon.
