Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, it's not going to get better. It's not!
Please disregard the last message. Obviously, we are not doing a food drive in the fall…since it is January!
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!
