MPC RAISED $36,100

In the early 19th Century English author Albert Pine said, “What we do for ourselves dies with us.  What we do for others and the world remains unchanged and is immortal.”


How poignant these words are in the early 21st Century when our MPC members, friends and family, came together and contributed to our monetary drive to assist Lebanese families that were affected by the Beirut Port explosion on August 4, 2020.


Through everyone’s generous donations we were able to raise $36,100.86.  After spending a $75.00 wire charge fee to arrange for the monies to be sent to each of our chosen NGOs: namely Beit el Baraka and DAFA, we were able to donate $17,975.43 to each of them.  The monies from Beit el Baraka were directed to families in need for day to day living expenses, while the monies to DAFA were directed to the Masharii Corporation, an engineering firm, that will be providing housing for people that have lost their homes.


“Thank you” doesn’t begin to describe the gratitude to each and every person that  donated towards this noble cause.  Our MPC Board are so proud of our Charlotte community that came together and spread the word to involve many people that included themselves, and their friends and family nationally and internationally.  We truly have an amazing community in you all!
