Community and Charitable Organization Involvement
Both our real estate brokerage (Provident Living) and our property management company (Provident Property Management) are committed to and very actively involved within our local communities.
We believe that local and national charitable giving is part of a full lifestyle. As part of that commitment, we support (among others) the following organizations:
Metrolina Regional Scholars’ Academy (a charter K-8 school);
Grey Stone Day School (a charter high school);
Wounded Warriors Project;
CCAR Scholarship Fund;
Christmas 4 The Kids ("The Rock" Church);
The Free Store (clothing the homeless in Mecklenburg Cty);
Kitty City, a project of Cabarrus CARES;
The Junior Charity League of Concord's
On Par to "Clothes" the Gap Golf Tournament
(clothing and school supplies for needy children in Cabarrus Cty);
Christmas "Shop with a Cop" program;
Masonic Lodge and Order of the Eastern Star;
and many breast cancer-related charities.
We also are supporters of our local businesses, both retail and agricultural, believing that "buying locally" helps our area stay financial strong which is a benefit and a boon to everyone living here!
Here are some details about a few of our favorite charities:
OPERATION MARRY ME MILITARY Cabarrus!
The goal of OMMM-Cabarrus is to give back to our military by providing a FREE wedding to an active duty military couple on Veterans Day each year.
The Operation Marry Me Military mission is to get all 100 counties in NC to participate with weddings in every county. Cabarrus is the 6th county to join the effort, and 2013 was our second wedding giveaway. The goal for Cabarrus County is to involve as many local businesses and business partners as possible to make this a once-in-a-lifetime wedding for a very special couple.

Boys & Girls Club of Cabarrus County - Festival of Trees
The Festival of Trees is a wonderful weekend of holiday events held in December each year at the historic Hotel Concord. This holiday event includes the Deck the Halls Gala on Friday evening, a Saturday afternoon children's event, and a Sunday buffet lunch among the trees.
We sponsor a fully decorated tree each year; afterward, that tree moves on to give joy to a family who otherwise would not be able to have a Christmas tree (working in conjunction with local churches and support organizations).
This is a very special weekend for us, as we are able to give back to the community in meaningful ways while spending time with our clients, vendors, family and friends celebrating the work of one of our favorite charities!
Cabarrus Meals on Wheels
For years, we’ve delivered a Meals on Wheels route - first in Kannapolis and most recently in our own backyard (rural Mount Pleasant). We respect and appreciate the seniors on our route and look forward to seeing them several times a month. When the grandchildren are out of school, they enjoy going with us to make the deliveries … and the seniors look forward to their visits!
