White Oak Manor Bingo Volunteers

White Oak Manor-Charlotte

Because of the pandemic, we will not be able to visit for bingo in the foreseeable future. However, White Oak reports that residents are doing well, albeit they cannot accept visitors at this time. We know they miss their bingo game! You are invited to think creatively to assist the activities department at White Oak. They can accept items that come directly from a carrier such as USPS, UPS, FedEx, Amazon, etc. They cannot accept drop offs. The residents have a variety of interests and some care package ideas might include: large print jigsaw puzzles, large print books, crosswords, sudoku, crafting supplies, cards to the residents, small items that we know bring them joy as bingo prizes (personal care items like nail polish, brushes, mirrors, combs, toothbrushes), small gifts like batteries, seasonal decorations, calendars, small journals, pens, pencils....The possibilities really are far-ranging. Given that we cannot visit in person, perhaps we can send some love by way of packages. Activities Department White Oak Manor 4009 Craig Avenue 28211 If you do send items, it would be helpful to include a note that you heard of this initiative through our Thursday Night Bingo Meetup. Thank you for your consideration!

HIT THE STREETS! - Feed the Homeless in Uptown Charlotte

First United Methodist Church--parking behind church playground

For ten Years, every other Sunday, a group of dedicated volunteers has taken to the streets of Uptown Charlotte with one goal in mind -- to make a difference in the lives of the homeless. Meeting up! **UPDATE: Please park at the Parking lot in the back of the Church. It is off of Church Street. If the parking lot is full you can park in the parking garage off 9th St. The P1 elevator will bring you to where we meet. Usually the exist gate is up and the parking is free, you just need to grab a ticket. There have been a few instances where the exit gate is not up, if that is the case parking is 5$. We depart no later than 3:05 pm and begin our route, which brings us back to that parking lot about 1-1.5 hours later. If you arrive later than 3:05 pm we may be out of view. Our route will be about 2 miles long. Our route may change with the weather or special events happening in Uptown, as we know that those that we serve change in response to these things. But our meeting spot remains the same. How’s it work? We keep it simple. Everyone does their part and brings a little, we compile those goods, and hand them out to the people who need it most. There is no need to put together your own care package; we put together all that we have, so it’s easier if you bring everything separate. Please DO bring any grocery bags that you have, as we use these to make individual packages for those that we serve. We are walking and passing out food and supplies, so anything that you bring should be individually wrapped and ready to go. What should you bring? Sandwiches; Pb&j, simple meat and cheese, subway sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs, etc. All individually wrapped Drinks; bottled water, Gatorade, juice boxes, flavor packets to go with water, etc Snacks; pudding, applesauce, crackers, cookies, granola bars, chips, etc Fresh fruit; Bananas, apples, oranges, etc Weather accessories- gloves, scarves, hats, hand warmers, plastic ponchos, etc These are just a few suggestions, check out our facebook (https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.500994423350958.1073741829.500820420035025&type=1&l=997042d8fa) for more suggestions. All items brought, will be passed out on the streets to those who need them. Kids are welcome. Please like us on Facebook! www.facebook.com/cltstreeteam (https://www.facebook.com/CLTStreetTeam/)
