The Charlotte Mecklenburg Chapter of Las Amigas Incorporated decided to spread a little healing by donating an enormous amount of Health Supplies to Westerly Hills Elementary on April 5, 2014 at their monthly meeting which was held at Independence Regional Library in Charlotte.  The supplies included items such as:  blankets, tooth brushes, tooth paste, tissue, band aids/gauze (various sizes), liquid soap, deodorant, and much more. Principal Gwen Shannon and School Nurse Renee Clark were both there to accept the supplies.  This project was coordinated and created by Cynthia Shepard who was selected as National Most Outstanding Member at the 2013 Conclave and invited all chapters to participate across 4 regions in this project at the national level.

Las Amigas Incorporated is a national, public service women’s organization founded by two dynamic ladies, the late Mrs. Dora R. Mason and the late Mrs. Mary Q. Moore, on February 5, 1957 in Charlotte, North Carolina.  Today the organization has a total of 22 chapters in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, DC and Pennsylvania.  There motto is:  “those who apply themselves too closely to little things, often become incapable of accomplishing great things.” Presently there are 20 members of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Chapter. Ms. Juanita Woods serves as Chapter President.
