Levine’s wealth aids poor, Pope’s beats them down

Howard Levine, son of Leon Levine and new CEO of Family Dollar, and Art Pope are two interesting North Carolinians. Both are over-the-top rich. Levine’s family started the Family Dollar chain of retail stores. Levine’s money has gone to literally build a 96,500-square-foot medical sciences learning center at Campbell University to teach physician assistants, pharmacists and doctors. His mission is to serve the under-served and poor of North Carolina. He also uses his vast wealth to support arts and science education in North Carolina and recently announced he is giving $1 million to help the homeless in Charlotte.
