The mission of The Charles Lea Center Foundation is to raise awareness about the Charles Lea Center and to provide funds, primarily from the private sector, to assist the Center’s mission of improving the quality of life for those with disabilities and special needs.

The Charles Lea Center’s goal is to help each person live more independently, and of course, that means different things for everyone so they offer an array of services including, supportive living, day, work, and case management services. Their services are based on the principles of person-centered thinking that look at the strengths of each person and use those skills to promote greater independence.

For more than 40 years, the Spartanburg Kiwanis Club has put on a pancake supper to benefit the Charles Lea Center. This year the 46th Annual Kiwanis Pancake Supper is April 14th from 5:30-7 pm. Food and paper products are donated by Denny’s Corporation and Kiwanians sell space in newspaper advertisements and tickets to raise funds for the CLC Foundation, last year they raised over $25,000. For this year’s event, you can purchase tickets here!
