I am supporting SHARE Charlotte's #GivingTuesdayCLT campaign by raising $400 for Community Culinary School of Charlotte, a local nonprofit that provides workforce development training and job placement assistance in the food service industry for adults in our community who face barriers gaining and retaining employment. CCSC focuses on their students' potential much more than their past situations. For most students, CCSC is the last chance for a second chance. I was drawn to CCSC and its mission because as an Assistant Public Defender in Mecklenburg County, I work with clients who are dealing with issues like addiction, homelessness, trauma, poverty, and unemployment on a daily basis. I am thrilled to support CCSC because their students come from the same population and communities that my clients do. (In fact, some of my clients have been CCSC students!) I am hoping to raise $400 for CCSC to purchase kitchen supplies and chef uniforms for their students. This campaign supports SHARE Charlotte’s #GivingTuesdayCLT campaign. To learn more and support the campaign and buy the items that over 230 participating nonprofits need to keep their offices open and programs going, visit visit sharecharlotte.org/givingtuesdayclt between November 14-28!
