Our volunteers partnered with Grier Heights to open a computer lab in the neighborhood.

Our mission is to partner with local communities and organizations of Charlotte to raise awareness and improve on the fundamentals of sustainability, including the following key issues:

  • Air Quality
  • Energy
  • Equity and Empowerment
  • Food
  • Jobs and Income
  • Land Use
  • Transportation
  • Waste
  • Water


SCCC volunteers are partnering with neighborhood residents to build sustainable communities!

In 2016 our volunteers are partnering with the residents of Grier Heights, a Charlotte neighborhood that is participating in Sustain Charlotte’s Sustainable Neighborhoods Program (visit to learn more). We began by taking a deep dive into how the residents wanted to see their own community flourish. By utilizing the resources in our city, we have been working alongside those residents to help them make their community vision become a reality.

Together, we organized a health & wellness walk, opened a computer lab, and are working to bring fresh produce to the neighborhood. We've been recognized by the community for the high quality of our work and relationship building.


Pop Up Produce is bringing fresh produce to Grier Heights!
