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.
**UPDATE: Please park at the Parking lot in the back of the Church. It is off of Church Street.
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.
