Meet Our Board Member Melissa Byrd Arledge as she shares her thoughts on why she joined the Grin Kids Board of Directors and what Grin Kids means to her.

I began volunteering with Grin Kids over 6 years ago, after experiencing a send-off as a liaison for Charlotte airport. The absolute JOY I saw on the faces of the Kidd and their families- you can’t put a price in that. And I knew that I had to get involved!

I’ve spent over 25 years serving with organizations that provide support to children with disabilities- and Grin Kids is by far the best! I believe so much in their mission and vision that I became a Board Member in 2019. During my time with Grin Kids, I’ve had the opportunity to meet so many families, play with their kiddos, hear their stories- and it’s just amazing. I love that we take them to Disney for a week...but it’s what happens AFTERWARDS that is so incredible.

Time and time again we hear about the bonds that are formed on the trip, and last a lifetime afterwords. The special connections that are made, the the support these parents are able to provide each other because they are in similar situations- is truly magical.
