MIFA’s Something Good in Memphis campaign is designed to celebrate those who make Memphis better, whether it’s the stranger who helps change your flat tire in the rain or a human services pioneer who changes the lives of a hundred poor Memphians. Sometimes people tend to focus on the bad and forget the good, but we see reminders of the good in Memphis every day!

Charlette Slape is a remarkable young lady


Charlette is amazing young lady who loves to volunteer in our community.She has been volunteering since her 5th grade year with starting a volunteer group at her elementary school naming it PAWS in ACTION after her school mascot PAWS. That year she started her first volunteer project call Hugs From the Heart to help children at the Memphis Child Advocacy Center to fill their Bear Wall. This project is still going strong after 6 years. She is very involved within the community with her project at the center along with volunteering at Theatre Memphis, Memphis Youth Symphony, Operation Christmas Child, working local runs, and Bolton''s Project Graduation are just a few she has done. She is also very involved with leadership by being on the Bartlett Mayor's Youth Council and with Youth Leadership Bartlett as well. If you ever have an opportunity to meet her you will see where her heart is to make a difference and help wherever needed. I am hoping that with this nomination you will consider her .She makes me proud to be her mom. Thanks for this opportunity!!! Nominated by Gina Slape.
