The Charlotte Rescue Mission is calling on the community to help the homeless and those in need, by donating food to fill our pantries at Rebound and the new Dove’s Nest. Local residents can help by dropping off donations at either location between now and August 12th. “The homeless are vulnerable and hungry throughout the year, not just during the holidays and winter months.” says Rev. Tony Marciano, Executive Director of the Charlotte Rescue Mission. “A life-altering change for someone in need can begin with just one meal.” The Charlotte Rescue Mission prepares over 400 meals a day. And even more meals will be served as women and children start to fill up the new Dove’s Nest. Both Rebound and Dove’s Nest will be looking to fill their pantries with large, warehouse club sizes of kitchen staples such as flour, cooking oil, coffee, tea, salad dressing, and sugar. The Rescue Mission is also looking for items like paper towels and toilet paper. For a complete list of items needed at both facilities, log onto charlotterescuemission.org. Charlotte Rescue Mission’s Rebound men’s program is located on 1st Street in uptown Charlotte, diagonally opposite the Carolina Panthers practice fields. The new Dove’s Nest for women is located on West Boulevard. Items can be dropped off anytime during business hours from 8:30am-4:30pm.
