For the Children

Over the years, thousands of Cabarrus County schoolchildren have walked out of the Junior Charity League of Concord’s Clothing Room with new jeans, shirts, uniforms, shoes, socks, coats, and gloves. Starting this month, probably that many more will turn to the charity for help getting dressed for school.

One of the ways the league pays for its biggest project is with proceeds from its cookbook, For the Children.

Founded in 1930 to feed schoolchildren whose families were hard hit by the Depression, the Junior Charity League has produced seven cookbooks since 1941. The most recent edition was published in 2010.

To order a copy, contact the Junior Charity League office at (704) 652-0669 or
