In the Community

At MRA we support local charities that have a direct impact on the quality of healthcare and quality of life in our community.  Here are just a few of the ways that MRA is giving back to the community.

Caroline’s Corner

Caroline’s Corner has partnered with Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center Foundation to honor Caroline Comly the daughter of John and Ginny Comly.

The Samaritan House in Charlotte, NC is a place for recuperative care for those who are homeless and in need of short term care.

Hemby Children’s Hospital

MRA bought toys for the holidays for children at the Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital. The pediatric hospital is always in need of assisting children who are in the hospital especially when they experience difficulty during an exam, are emergency room patients, or have to celebrate a birthday when in the hospital.

Loaves & Fishes

Loaves and Fishes provide groceries for neighbors in need that are located throughout Mecklenburg County, NC. Their mission is to provide nutritionally balanced groceries to individuals and families in Charlotte-Mecklenburg who are in a short-term crisis.

Lung Force

Lung Cancer is the #1 cancer killer of both men and women in the United States. Lung Force unites women and their loved ones to stand together to raise awareness of lung cancer. In women lung cancer cases have increased by 87% in the last 41 years whereas in men lung cancer has fallen by 35%. 

Ballantyne Ball/Promising Pages

The Ballantyne Ball is an annual charity gala that supports different worthy causes within the community each year. MRA is a proud sponsor and this year the event was a masquerade ball in support of Promising Pages which does wonderful work providing books to children in the underserved neighborhoods of the Charlotte region.

HeartBright Foundation Soiree & Wine Auction
