I've written about Note in the Pocket before. It's a great local nonprofit that distributes school clothes to needy and homeless children in Wake County. They have served so many kids, but there are so many more kids in the county who need their services.
Next month, Credit Suisse will be hosting a fundraiser for the group. Kicks 4 Kids Family Fun Day will be on the bank's Morrisville campus on Sept. 10.
During the event, they'll be collecting tennis shoes for students in need. There also will be music, food, a chance to win a cruise, and special guest appearances. You can sign up for a Kids Fun Run, a youth obstacle course and a Family Walk around the campus were participants will collectively take a step for each of the more than 53,000 students in Wake County who live below the national poverty line.
The event's website has more information.
