Who We Are

Today, Bright Blessings remains a volunteer-led organization that impacted more than 27,000 homeless and impoverished children in 2022. Through our core programs; Bless-A-Birthday, Bless-A-Baby, Gift of Literacy and Gift of Care, we surpassed a huge milestone in October of 2021 by celebrating 100,000 children served since our organization’s humble beginning. Bright Blessings now has partnerships with over 30 local agencies and school districts and is serving children in 6 counties including Mecklenburg, Union, Cabarrus, Gaston, Iredell and York. 

As we look ahead, we are excited about the opportunities for additional growth in our service area and new agency partnerships. As our organization grows year after year, we continue to deliver joy, care, and hope to even more homeless and impoverished children across our region and beyond. 


Bright Blessings is a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization.
