At Crisis Assistance Ministry, we embrace this day with open arms and invite you to join us as we celebrate 10 years of #GivingTuesdayCLT, a local, community-wide celebration led by Share Charlotte that involves hundreds of local nonprofits and thousands of caring Charlotte-Mecklenburg residents like you.
Beyond the sumptuous feasts and festive parades, Thanksgiving embodies the power of community and the spirit of giving. Here at Crisis Assistance Ministry, we see that power every day as you reach into our lobby and offer help, hope, and understanding to neighbors who are struggling to make ends meet.
Hope. Warmth. Light. What do these words really mean? What happens when they are taken away? Joe’Asia knows that fear, but she’s now able to share warmth with her family thanks to the help of neighbors like you.
It’s hard enough to make ends meet at any time of the year. But during the holiday season? Not only is it harder, but it’s also disheartening.
When you have mouths to feed, bills to pay, and little ones to clothe and keep warm, trying to manage it all during the busiest time of year seems impossible.
As the holiday season approaches, I want to thank you for believing in me.
Though you probably never met me, my family and I have you to thank for the hope, warmth, and light we will share over the coming months.
