CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) - Families in the Villa Heights neighborhood are coming together to crowdfund lawn equipment for a group of teenagers.
This comes after police were reportedly called on them. Neighbors tell FOX 46 Charlotte a homeowner was unfamiliar with who the teeangers were and reported them to authorities after they knocked at the door.
The teenagers started a lawn care business this summer called NCC, Neighborhood Cutting Crew. The money the rising tenth graders earn will help them with back to school needs, including clothes.
Homeowners are encouraging people to invest in their services.
Right now, the group is focusing their work in and around the Villa Heights neighborhood because they're borrowing equipment from a couple living in that area.
One of the young entrepreneurs lives in that community, which is why the couple offered to help the teenagers start their own business.
"We just walk around the neighborhood and look for houses where we can cut. We knock on doors. When we're done we give them our number and ask them to share it with other people," one of the teenagers said.
