METALCON will continue its annual tradition of making a difference with its “giving back” program in CharlotteWe have selected the Steve Smith Family Foundation which is dedicated to promoting family health & wellness as well as the awareness and prevention of domestic violence.

Toward the close of his NFL career, Smith and his wife, Angie, created the Foundation.  As a child, Smith was greatly affected by domestic violence.  Sports became his escape which allowed him to start a new chapter in his life, yes despite his NFL fame and fortune, he’s never forgotten his roots. Since its creation, the Foundation has been making a significant impact in the Charlotte area with its local partnerships, helping children attend summer camps, sports programs and by providing medical and counseling services at the Smith Family Wellness Center.

Thank you for your generosity in making a difference in the lives of others, and this year, for children. We hope you will agree that “they are the future,” and consider pledging your donation today.
