Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, it's not going to get better. It's not!

Calendar Update! Support Crisis Assistance in January, Loaves and Fishes in February!

Please disregard the last message.  Obviously, we are not doing a food drive in the fall…since it is January!

So…let’s begin 2018 with hearts of gratitude!  As the cold weather turns from all “winter wonderland” and holiday excitement to the long, cold months of winter, let’s take time to think about some of our neighbors in need.  During the month of January, we will be collecting new and gently used coats, hats, and gloves/mittens to benefit Crisis Assistance Ministry.  CAM serves our neighbors in need with financial assistance for utility bills and rent as well as providing a free store where families can shop for clothing and household goods.  For more information about this wonderful community organization, visit www.crisisassistance.org
Be on the lookout for a collection bin in the hallway near the office.  We will be collecting items from January 8th through the 31st.

And…Keep an Eye out for the Loaves and Fishes bin outside the office in February!  We will be supporting our Charlotte area food pantry, Loaves and Fishes, by collecting food items to help neighbors in our community who are facing economic hardship.  Loaves and Fishes has a network of 20 food pantries throughout Mecklenburg County and provides a week’s worth of nutritious groceries at no cost to people in need.

People are referred to Loaves and Fishes by human service agencies, clergy, medical providers and school counselors who see first-hand those who struggle in our community.

A crisis situation such as a medical emergency, job loss, reduced hours at work, or even a major car repair can cause someone to have to make a decision between paying rent or buying food.

48% of Loaves and Fishes clients are children.

So, let’s help!!  Items that are most needed this season are Canned Fruit, Canned Meat, Canned Pastas, Corn Muffin Mix, Powdered Milk, Cereal, and 100% juice (no glass please!!).  Please consider adding a few items to your weekly grocery list that will help support our neighbors in need!

Bring your items to the bin in the lobby any time during the month of February!
