NC Pre-K Program

The Alliance for Children has asked me to share that it is welcoming applications now for the free North Carolina Pre-Kindergarten Program.

NC Pre-K is a state program designed to strengthen four-year-old (four by August 31) children’s academic, classroom and social skills the year before they enter Kindergarten.

Parents are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. 

Phil’s List

Once upon a time, a very generous man named Phil Morehouse, seeing there was no comprehensive guide to the charities and services available to those in need in Union County, NC, set about the very time-consuming task of setting one up. He also set up an email list so he could keep people and organizations updated on any changes to “The List” and upcoming events and service opportunities that might be of interest.  The management of the list has gotten to be a bit much for Phil, so I have volunteered to take over. I’ve also begun adding pages with information geared to Union County residents. Please use the contact form if you would like to be added to the recipient list or if you would like to have your charity or service added to the guide.

All the best,


Lisa Cooper
