I am excited to support this year's Share Charlotte #GivingTuesdayCLT campaign. For those of you who are not familiar with Share Charlotte - it is a free, easy and local website that consolidates more than 230+ nonprofits in Charlotte and makes them more easily accessible to the people who live here and want to get involved. They believe that by doing good, we will create a stronger, happier Charlotte.
As part of the #GivingTuesdayCLT Campaign, I have chosen to raise funds for Friendship Trays - an organization that delivers more than 700 nutritious meals DAILY to the elderly, those recovering from illness or people who are disabled. I have volunteered with them in the past and they are incredible!!
As of 2011 the monthly cost of assisted living care averages $3,270 per month (that’s $39,240 per year). Compare that to a year of meals from Friendship Trays—only $1,658.40. My goal is to raise $1,658.40 which will feed one recipient for a full year. I hope you'll help me raise my goal!!
