Tuesday, November 27 is National #GivingTuesday. We have a donation drive on both our Facebook page and our website where you can go to donate your time or money to Families Forward Charlotte anytime from now through Tuesday! We are working hard to support the families in need during this Holiday season by providing Thanksgiving and Christmas meals, as well as Christmas gifts and essential baskets for families who can’t afford them. None of this would be possible without your continued support!
Gift Wrappers Needed: Dec. 15
We need gift wrappers at our Holiday Wrapping Event at Sports Connection on Granite Street from 3:30-6:00 PM. Sign up here to volunteer and spread the Holiday cheer!
An Update on Briana
You may remember from last month’s newsletter that we had a family in our Family Liason Program who recently fell on hard times, resulting in her and her two young children becoming homeless. Thanks to our AMAZING community, we were able to raise over $5,000 for her and her family to help them start working towards get back on their feet. Briana has a couple of full time job opportunities that she is waiting to be contacted about and is working hard to get things moving in the right direction. She continues to express her thanks and gratitude for the support you all have shown her and her family during this very difficult time.
